Undersigned, finding that Plantains are daily becoming more scarce in the
Colonies of Essequebo and Demerary, and being informed that they are still more
so in Berbice - so that, should the present dry weather continue, distress
similar to that formerly experienced may unhappily again prevail, - hereby
offers and will engage to feed as many Negroes as any Planter may bind a
burthen to him, with as many Plantains as they can eat and the customary
allowance of salt fish, rum, &c. in return for their labour.

having purchased the Estate Mon Desir, in Canal No. 2, without Negroes, and not
being well able to spare from the other Estates a sufficient number to get in
the immense Coffee crop now on the trees, he will therefore give to any person
having a Task-Gang, or any other number of Negroes, able to get in said crop,
one quarter of its nett proceeds.
are on the Estate excellent Logies, Negro Houses, and all other requisite
Buildings for the dispatch of business, the comfortable accommodation of a
white family, and the health of the Negroes. The situation of it is, besides,
very advantageous for the cutting of timber in Hobabo Creek, as it can be
brought down the side Trench of the Estate into the Canal No. 2, instead of
going a great distance down the narrow Creek. An active person might
therefore, perhaps find his account in stopping there after the pluck, and
employing his gang in the squaring of timber, framing of Houses, building
also offers for Hire,
Buildings in front of Mon Desir, consisting of a most convenient Dwelling
House, requisite out-buildings, Garden, &c. detached from the Buildings of the
Estate, and extremely well adapted for a private family.

Good Intentions at the close of the last Century in liberally supplying these
Colonies with sour Madeira and Bung-hole Beef. His steadiness and correctness

We have learnt that at an assembly of Merchants in a great City he had acquired
the appelation of Old Growl, and it has been hinted that he was deemed a surly
bad fellow - His taciturnity was remarkable for he never spoke but with the bad
intention of injuring the fame of others. - It was a singular circumstance
that he never could be brought to understand, that when L 500 or upwards was
placed at the debit of any individual's account, that it then became the
Property of that Individual, - this he would not allow to be the case.
