For the entertainment of the curious, and the observation of your more serious readers, I send you a copy of a card, now in circulation from- some modern sibyl, who has taken this public way of proclaiming her profound knowledge in the Divine Art of Foretelling Future Events, and the cheap method by which information of so much consequence may be obtained.
" Mrs. S. W. respectfully begs leave to inform the Nobility and Gentry, that she practises the Art of DISCOVERING FUTURE EVENTS incidental to either Sex, in a friendly way. Letters, post paid, at-tended to. Hours from ro in the morning till 9 at night. (We omit the Residence.) Fine Powder -sold."
