[Rhode Island Printing] Woonsocket Patriot and Rhode Island State Register [Advertorial Envelope]
A practical means of advertising one’s newspaper and job printing in 19th-century America
A busy envelope with various text and type faces to serve not only as a functional method of letter transmittal, but as a mobile advertising vehicle as well.
S.S. Foss, Proprietor, yet another savvy New Englander, is here advertising the “Daily Patriot” at $3.00 per year as well as the “Woonsocket Patriot and Rhode Island State Register”. Foss boasts of having the “Largest and Cheapest Newspaper in New England” and the “Largest circulation of any Country Journal [Country Journal?] in the United States”.
One last entrepreneurial entreat: “JOB PRINTING ALL KINDS” was available.
