In 1865 an 18-year-old man from Aroostook County, Maine, was looking for a wife. It was the “Chance for a spinster” to gain a husband. He had a “good set of teeth”. His “potatoes are bully”. He “believes in Andy Johnson, the star spangled banner and the 4h of July”.  He has “nine sheep”. He wants to spoil a woman but “I don’t know how to do it”.
