The undersigned having maturely considered the affairs relative to the Estate of Henry Farley Esq. decd. respectfully begs leave to recommend a Meeting of the deceased's Creditors, or their Representatives, at Mr. Marsh's Hotel, on Monday and Tuesday the 12th and 13th June next ensuing the date hereof. - There to deliberate on terms for the Sale of the Lands and Negroes, &c. belonging to said Estate, at Public Vendue - as the longer time given to Purchasers the more the Creditors will be likely to benefit. Whereas if sold at Execution Sale little can be expected, as the Debts against the Boodle [sic] will be little short of Two Hundred Thousand Guilders, and Revenue not adequate to disbursements.
Isaac D. Goddard Esq. (one of the Creditors) is hereby authorised to attend at the proposed Meeting, and to receive the proposals of Sale, which together with appraisement, shall be laid before the Honble. Court for their approbation. And should the sales not be sufficient to lequidate the demands, application will then be made to the Honble. Court to appoint Curators.
