We are truly concerned to feel ourselves

NOW IN THE PRESS, [heading - this and
following lines, except the last paragraph, are centered within the column]
The Subscriber particularly requests
that all Persons indebted to him, will come forward and discharge their
Obligations, &c. in all this Month (some of which are very long due), or he
will be under the disagreeable necessity of handing them over to a Lawyer, with
positive instructions to enforce Payment in the most summary way.
For Sale, a Negro Man about Twenty Years of Age. He has always been employed in a genteel Family, is a good Cook and Butler, and can take care of a Horse. For particulars, inquire of the Printer. Demerary, Dec. 13, 1805.

attention will be paid to any rendered after that time. All those who are
indebted to the said Estate, are requested to make immediate Payment, as it is

An Advertisement having appeared in last
Saturday's Gazette, under the signature of Frances Wilson Whereby she cautions
all persons against purchasing the Half Lot No. 21, and Buildings on the Front
Land of Plantation Vlissingen, which Lot and Buildings have been taken in
Execution by a Decree of the Honourable Court of Justice; and several idle
Reports having maliciously circulated, as it that Execution had been taken out
by me with a view to persecute the said Mrs. Frances Wilson: I think it
necessary to undeceive those that may have been misled by the Advertisement
alluded to, as well as by the Misrepresentations which have been made on this
subject, by stating that the above-mentioned Lot and Buildings are levied on
for an Obligation given by Rchd. Barnes to the Order of Jam. Russet, on the 9th
November [illegible] specifying to be "for the Half Purchase money of the
Half Lot no. 21 in Front of Plantation Vlissingen, with all the Buildings
thereon, which it reclaimable until fully paid for." This Obligation
[illegible] I am become the [illegible] Holder, has never been discharged by R.
Barnes to me, who has constantly given for answer, that Mrs. Frances Wilson
ought to pay it, because she purchased [illegible]lot and Buildings for a sum
of f. 36,000 guilders, of which she never paid any more than about 3,700
guilders, Holl. curt. although an Instalment fell due on the 1st of July last
for which Mrs. Wilson had been sued by Rich. Barnes in the last Court, who, on
the defence put up by Mrs. Frances Wilson's Advocate, has been nonsuited. With
what propriety Mrs. Wilson can maintain that the sole and only Title for the
said Lot is vested in her, when a sum of upwards of 32,000 guilders, Holl. cun.
remains still due by her on the Purchase Money, will note easily be discovered.
Her motives in cautioning the Public against purchasing the said Lot and
Buildings, and thereby depressing the Sale, may be accounted for on speculative
principles. Hugo Cantzlaar, J.Z.
The Subscriber requests those who have
any Demands against the late Mr. James Dickson, to lodge the same, properly
substantiated, at the house of Messrs. Henry Tulloh and Co. on or before the
15th of January next, as, after that period, no Notice will be taken of any
Claims that may make their appearance.
The Subscriber having been appointed by
the Honourable Court of Justice of this Colony, to be Solicitor before the
