The Subscriber intending to leave this Colony as soon as possible, offers for private sale his house and land, situated on the Middle Dam, Stabroek, known as No. 48, in which he at present resides, with all the outbuildings thereon: consisting of a good Dwelling House, Outhouses, and a small counting house on pillars, all in complete order; also 5 Negroes, amongst whom are a complete washerwoman, and a good stable boy - the others are all grass cutters; likewise three Horses - an excellent Chaise and two Saddle Horses. Further, he solicits once more all those who are indebted to him, to come forward with payment before the last of March, otherwise all accounts not paid by that time he will lodge in the hands of the Attorney-at-Law Fleischman, as no longer indulgence can be given.

By Permission of His Excellency the Governor, the Subscribers will expose for sale at Bourdeau's Logie, on Saturday next, the 22d instant, under licence.
230 Prime Windward Coast Negroes,

H. I. Underwood.

Notice. The Subscriber will give Four Joes Reward (exclusive of the Colony Allowance) to any Person who will apprehend and lodge in the Barracks a Negro Woman belonging to him, named Lamon, a Creole of Barbados, with her boy child called Charles. She is too well known in this Colony to require any further description, and is supposed to be harboured on the West Coast of this river, at or about the Plantation Best, belonging to Joseph Beete, senior, Esq. where she has a husband. She has been seen frequently on that plantation; and from the repeated offers of the Proprietor to purchase her below her value, the Subscriber has reason to suppose she is encouraged. If she will return of her own accord she shall be pardoned, although absent upwards of six months; and should she be still withheld from him, he will be under the necessity of publishing such documents as will justify his claim to suspicion.
Mahaica, March 8, 1806. Roderick Cozier.
