Here are some one liners...
The Unfair Business Practices of Chinese Barbers -- The Chinese barbers are unfairly working harder, longer and appealing to their customer's needs! I also talk about the Koreans in the Rodney King Riots. (I think I talked about this before but from a different angle.)
Harvard Incorporated -- One wonders why Harvard College needed to incorporate at this time. Corporations are somewhat like guilds at this time.
A Few Significant Surprises -- A list of events including a woman who comes back from the dead.
The Unfair Business Practices of Chinese BarbersThe first Chinatown in the Americas is in Mexico City and Chinese barbers have become a source of controversy due their unfair business practices compared to Spanish barbers. The Chinese work harder. They work longer hours and they have moved their barber shops downtown to be closer to their customers even though they must pay higher rents. How can anyone expect to compete with that? A special government official is appointed this year to regulate the Chinese. He begins by limiting the number of razors a barbershop can own. This is meant to limit the amount of business a barbershop can handle but ultimately it's not going to work with people who are willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. 
Harvard IncorporatedHarvard College (which is Harvard University in the modern day) legally incorporates as "The President and Fellows of Harvard College". The actual working of the college is incorporated into the constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Harvard is considered the oldest corporation North America.
