TO THE PUBLIC. [heading]
An Advertisement having been inserted in
Mr. Henery's Paper, dated the 5th instant, by Alexander Reid, tending to
prejudice the public mind against the Subscriber, he intended at first to treat
it with the contempt it deserved (as the circumstance alluded to, was well
known to most Gentlemen in Essequebo and Demerary); but as the said Alexander
Reid, and his medical friend James Brown, have continued to trouble the public
with false assertions, he finds himself obliged to vindicate his character, by
stating the facts as they stand on record, viz. that he has had legal
possession given him of the N.W. Half Lot no. 13, situate on the West Coast of
Essequebo, by the sentence of the Honourable Court of Justice of that River,
which sentence was founded on an award of an Arbitration Bond between them by
Daniel Ford and - Cox, Esquires, Arbitrators for the full settlement of all
Accounts relative to the said Half Lot; and, having deposited full and
satisfactory Payment, as required by the decision of the Court of that river,
in the Secretary's Office, for the Balance due to A. Reid, it then remains
clear that he cannot be prevented from disposing of the property to the best
advantage, for the Benefit of his Creditors and Family.

To the Editor of the Essequebo and
Your notification to the Publick on the
5th inst. breathes a spirit of liberality, consonant, I trust, to the feelings
of your numerous readers. Give me leave to state, for the gratification of the
admirers of exalted humanity, the following Anecdote, equally creditable to the
immortal Nelson and his Opponent.
At an entertainment given to Admiral
Villeneuve, in Reading, previous to his departure on his parole to France, one
of the company requested the Admiral to favour him with his opinion of Lord
Nelson, adding, that he thought him a GREAT MAN. "Sir," answered our
gallant adversary, "the energy of British Sailors is irresistible; but, in
the Battle of Trafalgar, EVERY MAN was a Nelson!"
I am, Sir, your constant Reader,
July 17, 1806. B. D'Urban. [note
