500. WH Sat May 2, 1795: Bosphorus Stands at the stable of the subscriber, the terms for covering the same as the last season. Grampus Stands at the same stable at nine shillings the single leap or twelve shillings the season. Grampus was got by the Voz Burgh horse out of a famous Esopus mare, and bred by General Armstrong, of Red Hook, his grand sire old Grampus an imported full bred horse. He is fifteen
hands and one inch high, and three years old in July next. Benjamin Brewster. Windham, April 28, 1794.

501. WH Sat May 2, 1795: Will stand this season at the stable of the subscriber in Lebanon, (Crank Society) the famous young Horse Grand
Turk. He will be three years old the 25th of June next, is a beautiful bright bay colour, 15 and a half hands high, and every way well
proportioned. His figure is truly elegant, and he is well calculated to recommend himself. Grand Turk was sired by the full-blooded horse
Recovery, well known by the name of the Pool horse. His dam was the noted Rockwell mare. She was out of a famous mare, and was sired by the old Demming horse. He sired the most good saddle horses of any horse in America. The terms are three dollars the season and two dollars the single leap, cash in hand, or four dollars the season, and fifteen shillings the single leap, if book’d, and seven dollars to insure a
foal. Good pasturing for mares, and the greatest attention will be paid by their humble servant. Benjamin Thacher, jun. Lebanon, 17th April,

502. WH Sat May 2, 1795: Will be let to mares the present season, the Young Liberty, A full blooded beautiful bay horse, four years old, 15
hands 1 inch high. His sire was the famous Liberty which I was to unfortunate as to lose a year ago the 5th of last March. He was allowed
by the best of judges the best horse in America, and was without a fault. His colts in this vicinity which are one year old this spring are the likeliest that ever was raised in these parts. The owners of many of them have refused 200 dollars for a colt at the age of 10 months. The
dam of the Young Liberty was the White Stocking, an imported full blooded mare, and remarkable for swiftness. The Young Liberty is allowed
by the best judges to come nearest the Old Liberty to any horse on the Continent, and bids fair to equal him in a very short time The terms,
three dollars the single leap and five dollars the season, paid in hand. He will be kept at the stable of William Stanton in Preston, the first
week in May, from thence to Lucius Cary’s stable in Windham the 11th day at 12 o’clock, there to continue until the 12th day at 12 o’clock, from thence to Mr. Dan Storr’s stable in Mansfield, there to continue until Thursday morning, from thence to Capt. Oliver Coit’s in Preston, there to continue until 25th, from thence to the first mentioned stable, and will continue the same rout in the same manner through the season. Strict attention shall be paid by the publick’s humble servant. Benjamin Clark. Plainfield, April 28, 1795.

503. WH Sat May 2, 1795: Will cover mares at the stable of the subscriber in the North society in Mansfield, the present season, that well known horse called Nabob. He is a dark bay colour, 15 hands high, handsome carriage, and remarkable sure; out of 65 mares that he covered
last season but six failed. He was sired by the famous horse Liberty, and his colts are very near if not equal to the Liberty’s. The mare he
came out of, was half blooded, which makes him three quarters blooded; being the same horse that the subscriber has kept the two last seasons. The terms eight shillings the leap, or twelve shillings the season, money paid down, of fifteen shillings if paid next fall, or twenty-four shillings for ensuring a foal. The 2d Monday in May he will be at the stable of Nathaniel Williamson, in Windham, being the stable improved by the subscriber the last season, where he will continue two days, from thence he will go to Mr. Dan Storr’s where he will be on Wednesday. On Friday he will be at Mr. Abel Holmes’s, in Willington, where he will continue two days, and from thence to the subscriber’s stable. Good pasturing at a reasonable price, and good attendance given, by Abel Clarke. Mansfield, April 29, 1795.

504. WH Sat May 2, 1795: Badger. The full-blooded English Horse Badger, will stand at the stable of the subscriber in Canterbury, for the
ensuing season, except from Tuesday noon till Wednesday 3 o’clock P.M. in each week, at which time he will be at Mr. John Parish’s, in
Brooklyn. He is a just made horse, 16 hands and one inch high, of a beautiful bay colour, nine years old last spring. Badger was sired by
Mr. Carol’s Old Badger, the most noted horse in Maryland. His dam was Teb, sired by Janus, upon Diana, a thorough bred hunting mare, imported by Mr. Charles Chew. Badger has been proved to be an excellent horse for stock and sure for foals. Mr. William Robinson, of Georgetown, in Maryland, sold one of his colts, a gelding not four years old, for 320 dollars. Another of his colts, which was a gelding, has been sold by Mr. _____ Fonsdale last spring, for 350 dollars. Said horse will cover at five dollars a season, or three dollars the single leap. Constant attendance will be given by Asahel Adams. Canterbury, (old society) April 17, 1795.

505. WH Sat May 2, 1795: To cover, the present season, at the stable of Capt. John Falshaw, in Killingly, at six dollars the season, or four
dollars the single leap, the famous English Horse Bashaw. He is of a beautiful bay colour, sixteen hands high, and otherwise well
proportioned for his height; eleven years old this season. He was purchased last spring in the city of New York, where he was bred, and
where he covered mares the season before at eight dollars, and proved remarkable sure for colts; it is said his colts are not exceeded from
any other horse. Perhaps as much might be said with candour as to his pedigree, as of any other horse, but I will only insert that he was
sired by the noted imported horse Bashaw, and came out of a full-blooded English mare, and is one of the best bred horses in this part of the
continent, and is really a remarkable good saddle horse. Please to call and see him. John Gary. Killingly, April 23, 1795.

506. WH Sat May 2, 1795: Remedy for the Canker Rash. From Thomas’s Massachusetts Spy, &c. Mr. Thomas, Being informed that the disorder, generally denominated the Canker Rash, is now prevailing in many towns in this county, and that in some it has proved extremely mortal; motives of humanity have induced me to suggest to the Physicians of the county, and to the suffering families, who are, or may be, so unfortunate as to be attacked by this formidable disease, a remedy, which has, of late, been used with great success, in many parts of the State of Connecticut. The remedy is simply a solution of common Salt in pure Vinegar. It is prepared as follows: Take a pint of strong vinegar, heat it in a crockery vessel, so hot as the hand can be comfortably borne in it; then dissolve in it so much rock salt, (previously washed) as it will hold in solution. Metallick vessels ought not to be used, as the vinegar will corrode them. The medicine, thus prepared, may be used both externally and internally. Externally, it may be used in bathing the throat, if it is considerably tumefied. Internally, it may be used as a gargle for the mouth and [fauces? sauces?]; and half a table spoonful may be swallowed every half hour or forty minutes, diluted with twice its quantity of water. I do not recommend it as an infallible remedy. No such are to be found. But, from my own experience, and the experience of others, I can recommend it for a trial. It has, in many instances, effected a cure of itself; in almost every instance it has afforded a temporary relief. It probably operates as an antiseptick, by suddenly and powerfully resisting the tendency to a putrid dissolution, which the blood often
discovers in this dreadful malady. Catharticks are undoubtedly often useful in this disorder, but it sometimes happens that, before the
friends of the patient are alarmed, a Physician called, and time for a cathartick to operate has elapsed, the patient has bid the world an
eternal adieu. If the attending physician thinks proper to administer a cathartick, the use of the saline mixture, above mentioned, ought to be
suspended during its operation. In the circle of my practice at Stafford, I have had numerous instances of this disorder. I have, as yet, been so fortunate as to be successful in every instance. In the first cases that occurred to me, I pursued Husham’s plan: in some of later date I have made free use of the remedy I have now suggested, together with Calomel and the Bark. I would by no means arrogate to myself the merit of the discovery. To the ingenious and justly celebrated Dr. Perkins, of Plainfield, mankind are indebted for the discovery of this useful medicine, and its introduction into practice. Samuel Willard. Petersham, April 10th, 1795.

507. WH Sat May 9, 1795: Windham, May 9, 1795: Died A daughter of Mr. Ebenezer Hill, aged 10 years.

508. WH Sat May 9, 1795: Bajazet, Will stand at the stable of Elisha Branch in Mansfield, (North Society) at Five Dollars the Season, or Three Dollars the single leap; the money to be paid before the Mares are taken away. He is a full blooded English Horse, 15 and a half hands
high, of a most beautiful bay colour, 5 years old next July. Bajazet was sired by Mr. Charles Carrol’s Horse Badger, perhaps the most approved of any Horse in Maryland; Badger was sired by Apollo of Virginia, upon an imported Mare owned by __ Portman; his dam was called Miss Trim, a noted running mare sired by Doct. Hamilton’s imported Horse Figure, upon an imported Mare of __ Tankervel’s. Any gentleman wishing to see said Horse, please to call and examine him for themselves. Good pasturage for Mares, and constant attendance given by the publick’s humble servant, Elisha Branch. Mansfield April 23rd, 1795. Bourbon, A Jack, nearly 14 hands high, well proportioned, sired by the Jack Royal Standard, imported from Spain, upon a Jill imported at the same time. They are believed to be the largest that ever were
imported into New-England. Bourbon will stand for Mares at the Stable of the subscriber, at 3 Dollars the single Leap, 5 Dollars the Season, or 7 Dollars to ensure a foal;or the subscriber will pay from 4 (pounds) to 4 (pounds) 10 for each Mule, delivered at Four Months old according to their size and flesh, exclusive of the service of the Jack.

dollars the single leap, and six dollars the season; he the last season proved remarkable sure for Colts, is of a beautiful chestnut colour,
fifteen hands and a half high, five years old, a very fast trotter, remarkable good traveller, and is equal for strength, beauty, and activity, to any horse that can be produced. He was sired by the noted horse High Flyer, now kept in New-York, and is there esteemed the first horse in that State; he came out of a full blooded Wilddair Mare whose dam was sent back to England. Christopher Starr. The aforesaid horse may be seen at the stable of Mr. John Staniford in Windham on Tueesday the 13th inst. Norwich, May 5, 1795.

He was sired by the Hydez Ally, the very noted horse lately kept by Col. Lemuel Grosvenor, Pomfret, and since by Mr. Rufus Child, Woodstock, and his dam equal to any mare in the state to ____ service of any kind. It is presumed that any person who may have the curiosity to see and view Grenadier, his shape, activity, &c. will be anxious to procure some of his offspring, without any further recommendation than their own judgment will dictate. The terms are Twenty Shillings the season, if the money is paid down, or Four dollars by a note given therefor, payable next fall, or for a single leap, as the owner of the horse and mare shall agree. Woodstock, May 1st, 1795.

515. WH Sat May 9, 1795: Granby, Stands this season for covering, at the stable of Pelatiah Kimball, in Windham, (Scotland Society) at Two
Dollars the season, or Four Dollars to ensure a foal. Said horse is the same that I have kept for two seasons past, and has proved himself very
sure for foals, and will recommend himself as well as any other horse. A very likely Jack will cover at the same stable, at one dollar the
season. Good attendance will be given by Pelatiah Kimbal, jun. Windham, May 6th, 1795.

516. WH Sat May 9, 1795: The subscriber has a large likely Jack to let to mares this season, or will contract for the mules at four months old. Also, another likely Jack of this country breed, to sell, and make the pay agreeable to the purchaser, or to let him out the season. James
Howard. Hampton, May 6, 1795.

517. WH Sat May 9, 1795: The famous full-blooded Horse Flying Buck, Stands this season for covering, at the stable of Elijah House, in
Hebron, (Andover society). He will be five years old the 15th July next; is a beautiful jet black colour, rising 15 and a half hands high, and
every way well proportioned. His figure is elegant; is as good a traveller as any horse in America, and is calculated from his size, strength and shape, to improve the stock of horses. He was sired by the noted full-blooded horse Rover, formerly kept in Lebanon, well known by the name of the hunt horse. Any one acquainted with that horse’s colts, will readily agree that they were equal for the turf or saddle to any
ever raised in America. The terms are four dollars the season, and fifteen shillings the single leap, if booked, and if paid down, three
dollars the season, and two dollars the single leap. Those mares that failed the last season, go this season for half price. Good pasturing
for mares. Hebron, 20th April, 1795.

dollars, if paid down, or a good note, to wait till fall, for eight dollars, the beautiful bright bay horse Light-Infantry. This horse is so well known, needs no further recommendation only to say he is the same horse I have kept two years past, and proved remarkable sure. Those
gentlemen who have good blooded mares, and depend on putting them to said horse, are desired to send them early, for it is uncertain where he
will be kept the next season, for there have been several applications for him to go to the southward. Said horse will be at Mr. Dan Storr’s,
in Mansfield, on Wednesday the 13th day of May, at 12 o’clock, and continue four hours; then at Dr. Howard’s, in Coventry, till Friday
morning; then to Esq. Perkins’s, in Ashford, till Saturday at 12 o’clock, then to return to the subscriber’s stable, and continue through
the season. James Howard. N.B. Good pasture for mares.

519. WH Sat May 16, 1795: A Proclamation. Whereas, I, the said plenipotentiary, in virtue of the power and authority in me vested, have
entered into certain preliminary articles with the following tribes and nations of Indians, viz. The Wyandots, Chippewas, Ottowas,
Puttawatimies, Miamis, Shawanoes, and Delawares, for a cessation of hostilities, and for the mutual exchange and surrender of all prisoners
of every description, as well as for holding of general treaty for settling all causes of controversy, and for establishing a permanent peace between the United States and the aforesaid tribes of Indians on or about the fifteenth day of June, next ensuing. Wherefore, I do hereby, in the name of the President of the United States, prohibit and forbid all and every person or persons, from killing, insulting or injuring any Indian or Indians belonging to the aforesaid tribes or nations, or either of them, (unless in their own defense.) And I do hereby also forbid any party or parties, citizens of the United States, or either of them, from entering the Indian country north west of the Ohio, with hostile intentions (without permission from proper authority first obtained) between this period and the end of the pending treaty, as the will answer a contrary conduct at their peril. And to the end that the treaty may be carried into complete effect, agreeably to the true intent and meaning of the preliminary articles; the said plenipotentiary enjoins all and every person and persons having in his or their possession any Indian prisoners, belong to those or either of those nations, to surrender them and each of them at his place, on or before the said fifteenth day of June next, and for which reasonable expenses will be allowed by the public. Given under my Hand and Seal, at Head-Quarters, Grenville, this 22d day of February, one thousand seven hundred and seventy-five. Anthony Wayne, By order of the Commander in Chief, Wm. H. Harrison, Aid de Camp.

520. WH Sat May 16, 1795: New-York, May 2. Extract of a letter from a respectable officer in the Western Army, to his friend in
Elizabeth-Town, dated Head-Quarters Grenville, Feb. 8, 1795. “Peace is the only topic of conversation here, as the Indians seem disposed to
accept it on any terms. A deputation from all the hostile tribes, have been with us, except the Shawanese and Delawares, they still hold out;
it is said they will come as soon as the cold weather is over. The Indians themselves confess they are reduced to the greatest want and
distress. They say their most considerate counsellors have always been opposed to the war, but the body of them have been misled by the
British, who constantly urged them to war, and never to bury the hatchet; their eyes are at length opened, and the Great Spirit has shewn them their error. Their interviews with the commander in chief were public, and all the officers attended at those where they delivered their
speeches and wampum. The 10th of August has not only opened their eyes, but made orators of some of them in the cause of peace; they staid
about ten or fifteen days, and were more anxious to return than usual, being so pleased with the success of their embassy, that it hurried them
home with the glad tidings of peace. Previous to their departure they signed the preliminaries to a treaty to be held here next June. Some
prisoners brought in with them say, they are in a state of starvation, having no bread for more than four months; from this circumstance, the
United States will I think, have to support them next summer, for they will take care to spin it out in the treaty; more than 3000 are
expected, I have been thus particular in this detail, as it is more than probable you will have a great variety of contradictory reports; mine
you may confide in.
