For Sale by the Subscribers, [heading]
A Curricle and Pair of Horses.
The Horses are very capital black American Geldings, seasoned to this climate, very good tempered, and when not allowed to remain too long without exercise, so tractable in harness as to be drove by the most timid Lady, they are in excellent order, and with fair work and stable attention will remains so. They have been drove as a pair - singly in a Gigg - and together as Tandem, and one of them is a most excellent Saddle Horse - thus the pair uniting in themselves all the advantages of Saddle, Gigg, and pair of Carriage Horses. The Curricle is light, neat, and easy, lined with red morocco leather, and very little the worse of the wear; - it originally answered either for one or two Horses, into which it could be again converted at the trifling expence of a pair of shafts and staples. There is one set of half-worn Harness which answers either for a Charriot or Curricle - and an elegant new set never used but once with "new patent" Curricle bar - which also answers the purpose of Charriot or Curricle, and if required a set of Gigg Harness will be included, - or a very good light Gigg, with outrigger so as to drive a pair, and Tandum hooks to go as Tandum with a double set of Harness will also be sold.
