The Undersigned gives Notice to his Clients in general, that only a fortnight is left to send Citations out for the next ordinary meeting of the Hon. Court of Justice in the month of January next; he requests, therefore, all Gentlemen, who wish to entrust him with any Cause they may be under the necessity of instituting, to apply to him as soon as possible, in order to avoid the great confusion which must unavoidably attend a multiplicity of business in the last moment. The Undersigned further takes this opportunity of acquainting some of those Gentlemen who may wish to entrust him with the management of their affairs, that, owing to a variety of circumstances, he is under the necessity of declaring, that henceforward he cannot undertake any Cause whatsoever, without receiving form the Person who puts it into his hands, at least the amount of the disbursements which he is obliged to make at the different Public Offices, where Cash payment is of course expected.
It is hoped that this Advertisement will be complied with; and that all the Clients of the Undersigned will, in consequence, call to refund whatever disbursements he may have been obliged to make in their respective Causes; as, otherwise, he declares himself incapable of carrying them up any further, and of course they will remain in their present situation.

TO THE PRINTER. [heading]
On perusing your Gazette of the 13th instant (see also our present Supplement), I find that Notice is given to the Public of Plantation La Resource being under Execution by the Hon. P. C. Ouckama, in his quality as sole remaining Partner of the firm of S. & P. C. Ouckama, Plaintiff, against me. If that Gentleman had only perused the Contract between us previous to his Proceedings, he would there have found, that only one half of the said Estate was purchased by me, and the enormous Sum of Four Thousand Guilders to be the balance due to him, which Sum is ready on receipt of a Transport. The other half of said place is the Property of Mr. George Healis, of Barbados, whose full power I hold; it is therefore, my duty to inform his Friends and Creditors, that his half is no ways liable for my contract with Messrs. Ouckamas; and we are not obliged to pay each other's debts.
I am, Sir, &c. James Parss.
