MRS. MARY GORDON (late MUMFORD) respectfully begs leave to acquaint the females of Maitland that she has commenced practising as Midwife, and promises the utmost attention and care shall be applied on her part to those individuals who may honor her with their commands. Respecting her conduct and qualifications, she has in her possession a Certificate from Surgeon ANDERSON, of the Colonial Hospital at Parramatta, under whose superintendence she attended the delivery of more than nine hundred women in eight years.*
In consequence of the great depression of the times, Mrs. G. requires no higher fee than 10s., leaving it to the generosity of those who can afford it to reward her services as they find her deserving.
Shamrock Cottage, West Maitland.
* i.e. at the Parramatta Female Factory lying-in hospital.
