1868 - People who receive circulars from New York or elsewhere containing samples of prints of which twelve yards will be sent for a dollar, or ten yards for eighty-five cents, are advised to suspect a swindle.

The address of one concern issuing such circulars was visited in New York the other day, and it was found that the place was in charge of a boy, and that no business was transacted beyond receiving letter, which usually numbered from thirty five to fifty a day.
