Unto all whom these Presents may or shall concern, Greeting! be it known:
Whereas it has appeared to this Court from a Statement given in by the Commissaries appointed by the Publication of the 29th of August 1804, for the purpose of Collecting the Tax thereby laid on Lots and Buildings on the front land of the late La Bourgade Estate, or Cumingsburg, and applying the Monies arising therefrom to the special end of making a new Front Dam in the said Cumingsburg, that a great proportion of the Proprietors of Lots and Houses so concerned, have hitherto neglected to Pay their Quotas in the aforesaid Tax:
These are therefore to Warn and require all Inhabitants of the said Cumingsburg whom it may concern, to come forward with the amount of their Quotas or Assessments in the Tax beforementioned of one and an half per Cent on the original Price of their Lots, and where the Lots are built upon, also of one and an half per Cent on the appraised Value of the Buildings thereon, and to Pay the same, within the space of Three Weeks after the Date of this Publication, to either of the Commissaries appointed by the Court on the 29th of August 18042 viz: - Charles Clifton, John Jackson and Adam Smith Esquires, on pain that, in default of such Payment no the expiration of the term herein before fixed, the Lots and Buildings belonging to the said defaulters shall be Publicly Sold by the First Exploiteur, after such Sale shall have been thrice Advertised by the said Commissaries in three successive Demerary Gazett's [sic], in order to recover out of the proceeds of such Sale the amount of the Tax due on the Property so Sold with the attendant Expences.
And that no ignorance may be pretended of this our Publication, the same shall be Published, Printed and Posted up as customary.
Thus resolved in Our Ordinary Assembly held at the Court House in Stabroek, Demerary, this 31st day of July 1805, and Published the 7th of September next thereto following.
