Civil War Harper's Weekly, December 26, 1863

Harper's Weekly was the primary source of news and information for people who lived during the Civil War. Families would eagerly await each issue, hoping to learn of the progress in the war, and perhaps read something of a loved ones unit. Today, these newspapers are a priceless treasure, and an incredible resource for adding color to the Civil War.

$15 Per Day Easy $15 And a Watch Free. Agents should be careful in directing their orders to us, as several small unprincipled imitators of our styles have sprung into existence lately, who copy our advertisements, and "promise" the same Premiums that we have "given agents" for years. Those parties can not fulfill those promises; consequently, agents can not be dealt with honorably by them. Those parties who advertise those Premiums require agents to send them from $40 to $50 in cash for their poor imitations before they can receive any thing. "We" do as we have done for years, present our customers with a Beautiful Gold or Silver "Hunting-Case Watch" on the spot, or send it with their "first order." No delay, no promises. We do it, and guarantee all our watches as perfect time-keepers, OR REFUND THE MONEY AND PRESENT THE GOODS. Agents will notice that our Prize Packages must be of extra quality, and meet with a ready sale, or they could not be imitated. We are the sole importers of the beautiful watches we present to agents, and no other Houses have them.
