Notice is hereby given, that, as it is absolutely necessary before a Dividend can be made of the Estate of the late Adam Knight, to ascertain what may be the real amount due from the different Debtors thereto - there being too much reason to believe the Books in their present state are very exceptionable, - The Honble. the Court of Justice has thought proper by appointment of 19th March last, to order the undersigned, in his capacity as curator, to call up the Debtors to the Estate of the late Adam Knight, by Public Advertisement, to give proof, if they have any, of the Sums stated against their names not being due, or to close and arrange the same forthwith, within the space of Two Month from this date; authorising him in event of failure to compel by Law such Debtors to do so, as shall appear after this period not to have complied herewith! The undersigned Curator therefore earnestly requests attention to this Notice, and that every apparent debtor will do him the pleasure within this period to put it in his power, by a clear and full statement of their transaction; with the Testator, to make a satisfactory arrangement of their several Accounts, to prevent any thing like disagreeable measures being adopted.
James Robertson.
