1822: Stealing Handsomely

Relative to the fire in Glastonbury, the editors of the Times say, “for the information of the editor of the Middlesex Gazette, we will state that Glastonbury lies in a direction N. N. E. from Middletown instead of Hartford.”–Now that is no information to the editor of the Gazette–he knew it well before.–But the editor of the Gazette would be very sorry to see in the next Map of the State of Connecticut, Glastonbury placed up in East-Windsor, and East-Windsor placed the Lord knows where–all owing to a blundering printer, who did not know how to steal a paragraph handsomely.

From the Middlesex Gazette (Middletown, Connecticut), Thursday, November 14, 1822.
