BRIDGE STREET, APPLEBY.
 
FURNISHING AND GENERAL
IRONMONGERY BUSINESS.
 
GEORGE WILSON,
 
IN retiring from the Business of General Ironmonger, &c., which he has carried on at Appleby during the past 53 years, begs to return his most sincere thanks to the very large number of friends who have so steadily and liberally supported him in the course of that long period;  and has now the pleasure to introduce as his successor, MR. RICHARD PEARSON, (son of MR. PEARSON, of Harbour-Flatt), and to earnestly solicit for him an extension of the favours which he has himself experienced.

RICHARD PEARSON,
 
IN succeeding to the above old-established Business, hopes by energetic attention thereto to merit and receive a continuance of the favourable support which has been so long accorded to MR. WILSON, his predecessor.  He can assure the public that in every respect, by keeping a
 
FIRST-CLASS STOCK OF GOODS
 
On hand, and by the prompt execution of all special orders entrusted to him, he will do his utmost to deserve their esteemed patronage.
 
R.P. brings with him considerable experience in his business, obtained both in London and in the country, and trusts nothing will be found wanting on his part to enable him to meet the wants of the district.
 
APPLEBY, January, 1874.
