Estate agent’s hype – eighteenth-century style

‘To be Lett ready Furnished,

One of the best and largest Houses in Conduit-street,near the Chapel; the Furniture is very good, and perfectly clean, the Offices below Stairs extreamly convenient, Fore and Back Stairs all the Way up, and a good Garden behind the House. Inquire at Clare’s Coffee-house in Conduit-Street, near Hanover Square and know further. N. B. It was lately inhabited by a Person of Quality.’

From The Daily Courant, no 6529, Mon Sept 24, 1722.
