acquaint you, that is my intention to adopt this plan from the commencement of
the New Year, and take this method of soliciting your assistance to collect
subscriptions, at the rate of Eight Dollars (Barbados Currency) per annum; for
which I engage to forward the paper punctually and regularly, by every
opportunity, under a general envelope directed to the Postmaster of each Island
or Colony, from whom the subscribers will receive them on application.
it is absolutely necessary that I should be made acquainted with your number of
subscribers on or before the last day of December, you will much oblige me by
an early attention to this object, and by informing me accordingly; sending, at
the same time, the amount of subscriptions for the whole or half year, in
advance, in cash, or by an order on a responsible person in this Island, as the
paper is not to be procured on any other terms.
have the honour to be,
very obedient Servant,
Post Master Gen.
