The only opportunity which can ever present itself of obtaining the most splendid Publications in Europe, and of adventuring a small sum in the most liberal and interesting lottery ever submitted to public attention
The Ladies and Gentlemen of this Colony are respectfully solicited to inspect the Scheme of this Lottery, which may be had of Mr. Williams, at the Post Office. The most beautiful Works in Europe, which have cost upwards of ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND POUNDS, form the Prizes (for an account of their splendour, see a letter signed by Lord Sheffield, Sir H. Englefield, and Wm. Smith, Esq. M.P. printed with the Scheme). The Engravings to be given for the Tickets which do not obtain the 1451 Capital Prizes, are worth intrinsically the full amount of the Purchase Money so that there can be no possible loss.
Tickets may be had of Mr. Williams, price Two Joes each, and each Purchaser will be presented with a beautifully executed Portrait of Lord Nelson or Lord Collingwood, at his option.
Purchasers of Tickets here will have no trouble to obtain the Prizes, or whatever they may be entitled to, as they will be safely shipped and consigned to Mr. Williams, or to their own Order.
As Mr. Williams is in possession of only Fifty Tickets, and it is now too late to obtain a fresh supply, those who are inclined to purchase will do well to make an early application. It is stated by Mr. Bowyer, in his letter, that the lottery will certainly be drawn by the 20th of next month.

A Scheme of the above Lottery may be seen at this Printing Office.
