ROYAL [Colophon] GAZETTE.
Notice is hereby
given - that attendance will be given on Thursday the 6th and Thursday the 8th
of March at the Office of the Colonial Receiver for the purpose of discharging
all that Class of Paper-money which is marked with a Red Seal or Stamp, by
means of the New Silver Coin lately arrived in His Majesty's Ship Peruvian and
the Ship Hebe, - and that other proper means will be directly resorted to to
bring the said Coin into Circulation for the convenience of the Inhabitants.
To prevent Trouble
from the very numerous applications that may be made, it is requested that no
Person will apply to exchange a less Sum than Forty-Eight Guilders at present.
One of the
Committee appointed for the
Circulation of the
Feb. 1810. [heading]
the pains that have been taken by the Commissaries of this District to collect
in the assessment agreed to by the Inhabitants at a general Meeting held the
29th January at Marshall's Hotel, to pay to Mr. Daly the arrears of Ground-Rent
due by the Representatives of Gwyn Jones, very little indeed has been paid as
yet: - feeling therefore the necessity of something being done in earnest, and
immediately too, to stop Proceedings which will otherwise be taken against the
District, (for an Execution on one Lot or other may be now levied in a very few
days) the Commissaries beg leave most urgently in this Public way to recall the
same to the recollection oft the Inhabitants. - It is indeed wonderful, when
the alacrity and readiness with which it was agreed at the Meeting to pay up
this arrear to Mr. Daly is considered, to find every one, with a few exceptions
only, so exceedingly indifferent now to the consequence of Non-Payment thereof.
respectfully informs his Friends and the Public that he keeps a Table for
Boarders, on as moderate Terms as possible, and he promises every attention
shall be paid to their accommodation.
