Building on the east, side of Chester Depot, is now
open for the accommodation of persons travelling by the

nothing short of a well-kept house, will induce custom to
this so recently gotten up; and although very solicitous of
patronage, he refrains from those thousand and one prom

He confidently hopes, that he will be sustained, and upon
