Every attention will be paid for the comfort of all who may wish to patronize them. Their bar is stored with the choicest of liquors of brands of all kinds, with all the delicacies that persons may require to refresh themselves with. JONAS BARTLETT W. A. DELAVAN 10 25 1841 BARTLETT'S BRANCH HOTEL AND REFECTORY, 36 Bowery - The Bowery may now boast of an establishment in point of elegance, comfort and taste, superior to any yet presented to the public in that section of the city. Mr. Jonas Bartlett, at 36, has added to his already well established and popular place of resort, a refectory, which has been satisfactorily tested within the last few days since its opening, by numbers, upon whom this long wished for and elegantly arranged accession to the citizen's comfort, burst with grand and unexpected brilliancy. In point of interior elegance it has no competitor. While the choice selection of all that contributes to the appetites, is served in a style of unequalled taste. A visit to the Saloon, where, independent of the usual atractions, the only perfect copy of the magnificent French plates, of the removal on board the Belle Poule of the remains of Napolean from St. Helena to Paris, and the procession to the Church of Invalids, may be seen, well deserving the study of the artist, the historian and the politician, is in itself a rational source of enjoyment; the officer, crew and ships being now in this port, attach to these exquisite paintings, regularly arranged, a peculiar fascination. Mr. Bartlett's spirited enterprise justly entitles him to a continuation of that patronage that he has successfully enjoyed, and no doubt his porsperity will be commensurate with his merits.
