Lewis Hayden Clothing Store Opened

CLOTHING! —– New Store, 107 Cambridge Street   LEWIS HAYDEN, Who, it will be remembered, was formerly a slave in Kentucky, has opened the above Store, and keeps a good assortment of  MEN’S AND BOY’S CLOTHING, of superior quality. He trusts that all will lend him a helping hand, for it will be his constant endeavor to keep for sale a good and cheap article on hand, both at wholesale and retail…. And he thinks that it would not be inappropriate here to return his sincere and heartfelt thanks to those who have rendered him assistance since his arrival here; and he trusts that, although he may not be able to reward them, yet that Being who knows the hearts of all men, will render unto them their just reward. Boston, Juy 13        (Liberator, August 3, 1849, pg 4)
