S. STEPHENS has the pleasure to announce the receipt of a large quantity of GOODS during the past week (consigned to him under peculiar circumstances) and being late the Stock of an Eminent Manufacturer on the Continent, which for elegance of taste and richness of quality, cannot be excelled: consisting of an exquisite STOCK OF DRESSES, SATINS, BLACK AND COLOURED VELVETS, RIBBONS TO MATCH, BLONDS, FANCY NECKERCHIEFS, SCARFS, GLOVES, &c, the whole of which are now Ready for Inspection.
A singular coincidence places the above at his Disposal infinitely Below the Manufacturers’ Price; and here he would point out, that the Sacrifice on French Shawls and Silks is tremendous!
S.
