WHITE HORSE INN, PRESTON
H.DERBY begs leave to inform the public, that he has just now entered into the possession of the above INN, hitherto well-known and frequented, which is fitted up in a most commodious manner, for the reception of GENTLEMEN, TRAVELLERS, &c.
He and Mrs Derby flatter themselves, that, by their assiduity and attention to please and accommodate, as is their duty, as well as inclination to do, they will merit a share of the generous public favour, which they humbly solicit.
