Alfred Mayell's Hats and Caps (1836)

ALFRED MAYELL, respectfully informs his friends and the public generally, that he has increased his stock of HATS AND CAPS, very considerably, and as his goods are all fresh, of the best materials and workmanship, as well as of the genteelest form, he feels confident he will be able to suit all those who will honor him with a call

        What effort of man—what production of art,

                To external appearance such grace can impart,

        Its an elegant HAT?—It has magic in truth,

                That makes the old young—adds much beauty to youth,

        And gives such a finish to DRESS as to throw

                A "shine" on the man—from the top to the toe.

        In short, there's a splendor in "Beavers," which he

                Who views must admire—☞Call at Mayell's and see!

                                Cannon's Row—Washington sq

Troy Daily Whig. August 24, 1836: 1 col 4.
