Found in Louisiana Genealogical Register, Vol. XLVII, #3, Sept., 2000, page 20:

New Orleans DELTA newspaper, issue of Mar.20, 1858:

"WIFE WANTED--By a young man of good moral character.  Would like a young Southern lady of some means.  For further particulars, address immediately.  F.R. Huntley, North Woburn, MA."  

Editor's note, same issue, added to the notice, which was copied verbatim:  "We hardly think that any of our Creole Belles will jump at "this young man of good moral character" while there are so many warm hearted gallant beaux at home.  Mr. Huntley must be in bad odor with the Yankee gals."
