Vol. VI.]

[No. 353.

TUESDAY, MARCH 12th, 1811.

WHEREAS in the Proclamation, issued on the 9th of February last, by the Hon. P. C. OUCKAMA, in consequence of a Letter from His Excellency the Governor, which renders Mr. J. HUBBARD again perfectly eligible to the holding the Place of Kiezer, or to any representative situation in the colony of Essequebo; it has been stated amongst other reasons, that Mr. J. Hubbard's absence to America, has been a further cause for his not applying before now, and, as the said J. Hubbard has this day represented to His Excellency the Governor, that he has not been in America for these ten years past, I have it in command to state, that this has been inserted by mistake, as the other reasons alledged by Mr. J. Hubbard were quite satisfactory.
