MUCH has been written, since this ūra [sic] of mercantile embarrassment, by those whose opinions we highly value, pointing out to us our duty, which is certainly a consideration well worthy the attention of every one who wishes to appear, what we may reasonably suppose every man does, a worthy member of society. And, to convince our correspondents of the high sense we entertain of their recommendations, and of our own duty, we trust our friends and connexions in this colony will excuse our telling them, that, from this day, we resolve to request immediate payment for every thing on delivery, and to sell no goods on other conditions to any person or persons whomsoever. In fact, stern necessity does not, at present, allow of any other mode of doing business.
Our friends and customers will not be deceived in us; as such accounts as are outstanding of this year we are perfectly willing to let remain over (that is, we don't ask for payment of them, though happy to receive it) till the usual period of settling accounts in January and February next, when we hope to see better times, and more favourable prospects opening to the West India interest; and to any House to which we may be indebted we should think it extremely improper to refuse credit.
We have received by the Friendship, from London, an additional assortment of provisions, plantation stores, &c. to those remaining of our late importations - for sale, on the above terms.
Newtown, 7th Sept. JAMES ROBERTSON & Co.
