The Last Outinian Lecture for this season, (Which will contain History of the Society.)Mr. Richardson, Who was recently at Weymouth, with a view to read these fashionable Lectures, which have now several Years retained, and still retain, their attraction in the Metropolis, has been unable to defer a return to Town, which unexpected business compelled. For this reason, and because of the attendance at some of his late Lectures here has been unequal to what he is accustomed to meet with, a superior Member of the Society has resolved to volunteer his Services, in hopes of preventing loss and inconvenience from a visit to this distant place. In consequence this Gentleman proposes to shew the style of these Lectures by reading at least One, which he will do at the Crown Inn, Weymouth, On Saturday next, the 1st of December, As soon as possible after 2 o'clock in the Afternoon.
Broadside, 310 x 235mm. 12¼ x 9¼". Very scarce. Trimmed and laid on album sheet.
