170 Years Ago

The Muncy Luminary

Saturday morning

December 11, 1841

Those of our subscribers who receive their papers at Hughesville and Muncy Mills are informed that the packages, designed for those places will hereafter be left at the Store of Thomas & Barr, in this place, where they will always be found, when called for, they will be left there regularly every Saturday, and it is hoped that those coming to town on that day will not fail to cal for them.


A Present!

What lucky fellows we printers are – and no mistake! The other evening while seated in our domicil, enjoying the pleasures and smiles of our little family, our attention was directed to a tap at the door and on proceeding thither we were greeted by an esteemed friend, who, after exchanging the usual salutations among friends, presented us with a basket of fine large apples and a pitcher of very delicious apple butter.

We, of course, accepted the preferred donation, counted ourselves quite lucky, and politely thanked him for his present.


The idea of recommending Felty Best as a suitable person for the clerkship at the House of Representatives, is what we consider the climax of nonsense!
