The Thursday News - Great News

April 16, 1790
Amongst the fortunate proprietors of Lottery tickets this season, is Mr MARRIS of Winterton in this county, who a few days ago was agreeably surprised at being informed, the ticket of which he held a Half Share, had drawn a £20,000 Prize. He then immediately set off for London where he has had the pleasure to receive £10,000 on demand, as being his share of the Prize.
