BOSTON.

151. The Boston post-boy & advertiser. w., May 30, 1763- Sept. 25, 1769.

Note: Continuation of Green & Russell's post-boy & advertiser, beginning the new title May 30, 1763. Below the title are the words "Containing the freshest advices, foreign and domestic." This phrase is variously separated from the title by a comma, a period, or a rule. With the issue of May 23, 1768, an arrangement was entered into between Green & Russell and Richard Draper, publisher of the Boston news-letter, by which a paper with the title, The Massacusetts gazette was published by the two firms as part of, or accompanying, their respective papers. The title, however, of The Boston postboy & advertiser was not changed, the most noticeable difference in appearance being the new heading of The Massachusetts gazette at the top of what generally was the third page of the paper. This arrangement lasted until the issue of Oct. 2, 1769, when the Post-boy changed its title to The Massachusetts gazette, and the Boston post-boy and advertiser.

Publisher: John Green and Joseph Russell.
