Text concludes on pg. 3: "It is further requested, that the proposals may be returned to the post-office in Richmond as soon as the month of November next ... addressed to W. G. Lyford, the publisher. ... Richmond, September 1st, A.L. 5810--A.D. 1810." The New-Hampshire-born Lyford sold his Staunton press in May 1810 to printer Isaac Collett of Winchester and moved to Richmond; he issued this prospectus while he was employed as a journeyman printer there; this periodical never started publication and in early 1811 Lyford moved on to Norfolk to become proprietor of the Steamboat Hotel Reading Room there.
