Bridgwater Alfred 1.50, 16 July 1832

1832-07-16-Vol-1-no-50

Notes from the 16 July 1832 edition:

The entire back page, usually where the local news could be found, in this edition is entirely taken up by political messages from the local Tory candidates. The front page still has local adverts and a few pieces of local news on the right-hand side.

The Grammar School is advertised to reopen on Friday 20 July. The Grammar School was last mentioned in the 11 June edition for the yearly examinations, so had presumably closed for a Summer recess.

Advertisement for the copper-bottomed ship EUPHROSYNE of 500 tons, with its master Joseph Samson, to sail directly to Quebec from Bridgwater at the start of August 1832. Thomas Sully is mentioned as the shipping agent. The same ship had been advertised back in January, and a report of a sailing in the 2 April edition was reported on. The August sailing would arrive on 1 October.
