Posted in the lonely hearts-equivalents through whichever newspaper(s) is scandalous enough to host such a section.

Quote:Lawyer seeks practical wife. Ideal wife enjoys poetry, charity events, and maintaining a healthy dash of mystery about herself and those who surround her. She can expect her children to be small in number, well-educated, and well-fed. Exact family size negotiable. Interested parties are encouraged to send forth their information to post box #54. Please include education level, languages spoken, interests, how neat the candidate is, how often the candidate burns food, and a public time and place in which we might accidentally make each others’ acquaintance.

Quote:Butcher seeks wife. She should be a quiet, unassuming girl with a pretty enough face, no education beyond primary school needed but appreciated. She must be willing to bear children who shall inherit the butchery someday. Family size? The more the merrier. He is catholic but not devout. Answer to Box #14 with a description of you and your likes. We will arrange for a place to meet, bring a chaperone if you must.

Posted in the lonely hearts section of the local gazette:

Quote:Single adult male in his 30s needs a wife to be his anchor in the storm.  Would like someone trustworthy and understanding. Looks and money not important. Male not rich or attractive, do not expect love, but will be cared for. Must not want/expect children,  already having children and/or pets acceptable. Please send replies to box #12.

Posted in the job section

Quote:Maid needed. One woman and one cat home, easy work. You do not need to be very cultured or literate, but it would help. May need to run errands such as to the market sometimes. I like competency but can work with someone new to the job if they have a nice face. Job seekers may come in to Pennyfeather's Papers for an interview.

Among the ads tucked close between the job services and the seeking romance was an unusual and somewhat vague advertisement.

Quote:'Like dinner parties? Reading? Spending an entire day drinking wine while stroking your feline? Come to the lady at Pennyfeather's!'

Posted in the Help Wanted section.


Quote:Doctor Donald S. Witaker is in need of a nurse, a maid, and an apprentice. All parties must be willing to work with people in need of medical attention and it is not for the faint of heart. All parties must be clean and of good and sound mind.

Apprentice must be a young man of good morals, willing to put in the effort of becoming a doctor. I will be willing to pay for your schooling should you do a proper job.
