Saturday, the 22d of March.
To Mr. N. Volkerts, Printer [heading]
I am directed by the Governor to inform
you, that His Excellency has seen with much displeasure some illiberal and ill
natured reflections and paragraphs which have lately appeared in your weekly
papers. As they can have no other tendency than, by exciting irritation and
animosity among the inhabitants, to disturb the tranquillity of this Colony,
His Excellency expects you will conduct your publication with more propriety in
future, and thereby prevent the necessity of a more severe correction.
You are required to publish this
Reprimand in your next paper.
