I was leafing through the microfiche of an 1804 paper recently and the grammar used is not much different to today. Amazing to think it is 205 years old. They were talking about national and international events in similar dialogue and grammar that we do today with adverts such as "Sweeten Your Breath" or "Rheumatism Herbs".
