But ere this, on Jan. 15, was the following,

Last Sabbath fo'night died at Wenham Mrs. Mary Hall aged 21, Wife of Ebenezer Hall, one of the Printers of this Paper, and Daughter of Capt. Josiah Orne of Salem. Her remains were interred at Salem the Thursday following.

And again on Feb. 22,

On Wednesday evening, last week, departed this life after a short illness, Mr. Ebenezer Hall, in the 27th year of his age, for many years one of the Printers of this Paper—having survived his Wife only six weeks. His remains were respectfully interred at Medford the Saturday following.

Samuel Hall, original and surviving Publisher of this Paper, intends to continue the Publication of it as usual. His being seized with a violent sickness just after his brothers illness commenced, will, it is hoped induce his kind customers to excuse the disappointment of a paper last week and the printing of but half a sheet this.
