The Boston Evening Post, 23 February 1759:
To the ladies, and young lady between the age of eighteen and twenty three of a middling stature; brown hair, regualr features and a lively brisk eye; of good morals and not tinctured with anything that mat sully so distinguished a form possessed of 3 or 400 pounds entirely her own disposal and where there will be no necessity of going through the tiresome talk of addressing parents or guardians for their consent: Such a one by leaving a line directed for A.W. at the British Coffee House in King Street appointing where an interview may be had will meet with a person who flatters himself he shall not be thought disagreeable by any lady answering the above description. N.B. profound secrecy will be observ'd. No trifling answers will be regarded.
The demanding advertiser turned out to be no more than an impecuous subaltern in the British Army.
