NERD ALERT - Obtained another TJ Piece!

Obtained the May 1, 1826 VIRGINIAN newspaper as delivered to Thomas Jefferson's Lynchburg retreat, Poplar Forest (a couple months before TJ's death at Monticello).

Fascinating content - loads of lotteries (just as many fools born back then); sales of beaver hats and custom clothes for dandies; reports of politics and breaches of sacred marriage proposals; and - horribly - even ads for sales of people.

For me, the most relevant content is the ad for Dr. Drisden's Celebrated Rheumatic Powders, a certain cure for rheumatism and gout.
