Yes, I made a mistake with the newspapers. I started saving the pages to my computer as full page images, so they're not searchable. When I realised how inconvenient it was, I went back and started saving clippings of individual adverts and articles into Evernote, tagged by subject, but it's a big job and sadly other things often get in the way, like writing and housework. smiling smiley

I did find one thing about Seminaries that made me smile, from the Lady's Monthly Museum, (Feb 1811) in the "Notes to Correspondents" section:

"We have received a printed advertisement of a Seminary for the instruction of young ladies as good housewives. We are at a loss to imagine with what intention it was printed; if as a hoax, it has failed; if as satire, it wants point; but if seriously intended, we must commend it, though the art of "milking cows" and "feeding pigs" are accomplishments which may generally be dispensed with."
