A Single Gentleman wishes to be accommodated with Board and Lodging in a genteel Family, or otherwise in any respectable House. - For particulars apply at the Office of this Gazettte. Decb. [sic] 20th 1806.

Mr. E. J. Henery,
Sir, - On perusing the Gazette of the 13th Instant, I find that Notice is given to the Public, of Plantation La Resource being put 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 gentlemen had only perused the contract made between us, previous to his proceedings, he would there have found that only one half of said Estate was purchased by me, and the enormous sum of Four Thousand Guilders to be the balance due 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 to act. It is therefore my duty to inform his friends and creditors, that his half by no ways is liable for my contract with Messrs. Ouckama's, and we are not obliged to pay each other's debts.
I am Sir
Your Obedient Servant,
James Parss.
Demerary, December 20th, 1806.
N.B. The above Estate were [sic] appraised by two respectable Planters of this Colony five years ago, for f 110,000.

Essequebo, December 24th 1806.
To the Printer,
Sir, - I find it much beneath my character to put myself on an equal footing with a Mr. Parss, by keeping a Public Correspondence with him, I nevertheless deem it indispensable to acquaint the Public (for the first and last time on this unworthy subject) that Messrs. S. & P. C. Ouckama sold in September 1796 to the said Mr. Parss, the Plantation La Resource, containing 124 Acres of Land, situate on the West Sea Coast of this River, for the enormous sum of Ten Thousand Guilders, payable in the so very short and ungenerous time of Ten Years only, viz: One Thousand Guilders every year, with the so illiberal Interest of Sixty Guilders per annum on the whole Capital sum till fully paid. It is true, he is (as he observes in his address inserted in your last Gazette) only four years backwards in his so very heavy installments, and uncommon high interest. He owes no more than two-fifths of the Purchase money (exclusive of the Law Expences), and it is indeed very ungenerous of me not to have waited longer, especially when an Estate is sold so much beyond its value, and when "the sum" is (and no doubt has since long been) ready for me! ! ! In fine, Mr. Parss promised me some months ago, that he always would be thankfull to me for my indulgence towards him, and I am now very happy to receive his heartfelt acknowledgements, in every respect so consistent with his behaviour in regard to said Contract.
I am, Sir, your obed. Servt.
P. C. Ouckama.
