New-Town, 27th Feb. 1810. [heading]
Notwithstanding the pains that have been taken by the Commissaries of this District to collect in the assessment agreed to by the Inhabitants at a general Meeting held the 29th January at Marshall's Hotel, to pay to Mr. Daly the arrears of Ground-Rent due by the Representatives of Gwyn Jones, very little indeed has been paid as yet: - feeling therefore the necessity of something being done in earnest, and immediately too, to stop Proceedings which will otherwise be taken against the District, (for an Execution on one Lot or other may be now levied in a very few days) the Commissaries beg leave most urgently in this Public way to recall the same to the recollection oft the Inhabitants. - It is indeed wonderful, when the alacrity and readiness with which it was agreed at the Meeting to pay up this arrear to Mr. Daly is considered, to find every one, with a few exceptions only, so exceedingly indifferent now to the consequence of Non-Payment thereof.
