          William Watkins advertised his furniture and chair ware-room at Harrison and Broadway.  He had a complete stock of cabinet ware and chairs and was puttting up a steam engine for the purpose of doing turning of all kinds, such as bed posts, bannisters, newel posts, wagon hubs and chair stuff.  He wanted 50,000 feet of good cherry and walnut scantling.  Grain of all kinds would be taken in exchange for furniture.
