Alexandria 02-02: The Columbian Mirror and Alexandria Gazette

Starting Date: December 29, 1793

Ending Date: September 13, 1800

Publication Frequency: 3/week (Tues, Thu, Sat)

Proprietors: Ellis Price & Henry Gird Jr.


Price increased the publication frequency of his year-old newspaper with the December 29, 1793, issue (from twice weekly to thrice); with the issue of November 29, 1796, Price took Henry Gird Jr., his shop foreman, into a year-long partnership with him in his office; ownership reverted to Price alone with the November 23, 1797, issue with Gird remaining in his employ; Gird then bought the office from Price, appearing as its sole proprietor with the issue of February 27, 1798, and remained such until he sold the office back to Price on December 13, 1799; hence from the December 14, 1799 issue through the September 13, 1800 number, Price was again the sole proprietor.
