The Notice we formerly gave in this Paper, of the many Inconveniences of
Foot-passengers are subject to, by the Incroachments suffered with Impunity, of
Sedan Chairmen (with or without their Fare) Ballad-singers, &c. constantly
occupying the Foot-passages of Essex-bridge, being insufficient, to excite our
chief Magistrate's Interposition on behalf of the Public, who are hereby
aggrieved. We now find ourselves necessitated to apply to the Court of
Assistants, for their humane Interposition, for the Removal of the Sedans, as
they fall particularly under their Department. This Nuisance once removed, may
induce the City Officers to follow their Example, and clear the Foot-passages of
the Ballad-singers, &c.
A Person who has served in the Station of a Keaterer, Butler, Groom of the
Chambers and Gentleman's own Man, Shaves and dresses well, and has an undoubted
Character from every noble and private Family he has served; is to be heard of
at Mr. Thomas Bacon's, Peruke-maker and Hair dresser in Sycamore-Alley.
