"During the bitter political campaign of 1807 and 1808, Cushing and Appleton were the publishers of three small humorous periodicals, in all of which the Republican Party was the object of ridicule and satire. John S. Appleton, the junior member of the firm, was a well-known wit, whose pen was very active in furnishing material ...'The Barber shop' ... was published in four parts ... first part published Aug. 14, 1807, 2d Sept. 4, 1807, 3d Sept. 29, 1807, 4th Nov. 10, 1807."--Tapley, Harriet Silvester. Salem imprints, 1768-1825 (Salem, Mass., 1927), p. 183-185, 410-411.
Isaac Story (1774-1803) is sometimes attributed as the editor. His death several years previous to publication makes this impossible. It also seems unlikely that Isaac Story (1749-1816), pastor of the Second Congregational Church in Marblehead, was involved with the publication.
Ascribed to the printing office of Joshua Cushing by Tapley.
