Inscription Edward and Mary Hutton, chimney-sweepers, (likewise emtieth necessaries) are now moved by the Spread Eagle in Humerton, Hackney. This is to acquaint the gentlefolks that I have a son, that prejudiceth me (in my old age,) likewise tells the gentry that he goes partners with me, which is very false; and as we have lived in the town upwards of forty years. I hope the gentry will take into consideration, not to employ any other while we are able to do our business in a compleat manner. Likewise cleans smoak-jacks, and extinguishes fires in chimnies with care and safety. We are always willing to serve gentry by day and night, and if so happy as to merit a continuation of their favours, will lay a lasting obligation on their humble servants, Edward and Mary Hutton
