E Thomas and Co, Hatters, from 316 Oxford Street, London, beg to inform the Ladies and Gentlemen, and the public in general, of Portsmouth, Gosport, Common &c., that they have opened a shop, the corner of Church Lane, in High Street, where they have a great variet of Ladies’, Gentlemen’s and children’s hats, for their inspection, with feathers, patent umbrellas &c., which will be sold sold on the most reasonable terms, as usual.
They return their most grateful acknowledgements for the great encouragement they have met with for many years past, and flatter themselves their present good stock, and low prices will ensure them future favours.

The disgraceful condition of Church Lane, demands prompt reparation at the hands of the Commissioners. On Sunday last, being a wet day, this passage, forming one of the chief entrances to the parish church, was, owing to the irregularity of the stones, in a state discreditable to the Board.
