has been written, since this ūra [sic] of mercantile
embarrassment, by those whose opinions we highly value, pointing out to us our
duty, which is certainly a consideration well worthy the attention of every one
who wishes to appear, what we may reasonably suppose every man does, a worthy
member of society. And, to convince our correspondents of the high sense we
entertain of their recommendations, and of our own duty, we trust our friends
and connexions in this colony will excuse our telling them, that, from this
day, we resolve to request immediate payment for every thing on delivery, and
to sell no goods on other conditions to any person or persons whomsoever. In
fact, stern necessity does not, at present, allow of any other mode of doing
friends and customers will not be deceived in us; as such accounts as are
outstanding of this year we are perfectly willing to let remain over (that is,
we don't ask for payment of them, though happy to receive it) till the usual
period of settling accounts in January and February next, when we hope to see
better times, and more favourable prospects opening to the West India interest;
and to any House to which we may be indebted we should think it extremely
improper to refuse credit.
