Notice. [heading]
As no attention whatever has been paid to the Subscriber's advertisement in this Paper of date 30th December ult. - he now for the last time informs those concerned, that he is positively determined to be no longer triffled [sic] with by promises, and it is therefore his fixed intention to institute Actions in time for the May Court against every one without respect to Persons, who may then remain indebted to him on Account, Notes of Hand &c. for former Years, a measure so unpleasant that nothing but a duty to himself and his Creditors could compel him to have resource to.
