"At this time, (Juno, 1782,) about noon,
Hancock was dressed in a red velvet cap,
within which, was one of iln'o linen. Tho
latter was turned up over the lower edge of
tne veivcione, two or three inches. Ho
wore a blue damask gown, lined with silk;
a white stock, a while satin embroidered
waistcoat, black satin sniall clothes, whito
silk stockings, nnd red morocco slippers."
Ho was then about forty-five years of ago.
A hint to wooeus. 'Women,' observes
some writer, whoso name we do not re-j j

but those that will not fall witjjtfuba good
