  • Newspaper, 3 MAR 1840: "TO THE PUBLIC.-- It was with no little surprise I was in the Ledger, of the 26th Feb. 1840, an advertisement signed J. McGlathery [James D McGlathery] charging my son, William R. Haffelfinger with having from him. The truth is, my son, was never bound to Mr. McGlathery--consequently, he cannot be about termed an apprentice: he was with Mr. McGlathery for about fourteen months on trial only, and had he been treated as he was justly entitled while with him. I should have bound him; but as my son was unwilling to remain any longer with Mr. McGlathery. I called upon Mr. McGlathery, and after a full and mutual understanding, it was agreed that my son should go home with me to Bordentown [Burlington County, New Jersey]. Mr. McGlathery's wife [Elizabeth D Houseman] aided to get ready and packed up my son's clothes on Friday, 21st, and on that day following, he visited them and received a trifling present; after which we parted, as though friends, fully and fairly satisfied with each other. How true indeed, is the saying that 'the heart of man is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.'
    Very respectfully,
    Deborah [Deborah Starkey] Higgins"
    --"Public Ledger and Daily Transcript, Philadelphia, PA" 3 MAR 1840.
    This saying comes from the Bible passage (NKJV), Jeremiah 17:9, which focuses "Judah's Sin and Punishment," as it is written in 17:9-10, which more fully and aptly flushes out the passages meaning:

    "9 The heart is deceitful above all things,
    And [d]desperately wicked;
    Who can know it?
    10 the Lord, search the heart,
    I test the [e]mind,
    Even to give every man according to his ways,
    According to the fruit of his doings."
