                              Barbados, November 2, 1811.
Dear Sir,
In consequence of the extensive circulation of, and very great demand for, "The Barbados Mercury and Bridge-Town Gazette," and the very numerous complaints of the irregular manner in which it is now forwarded to the different Islands and Colonies, and delivered; and as my situation in the Post-Office always affords me the command of every opportunity from this Island - it has been suggested to me, that it would be extremely beneficial were I to engage as general Agent for the purpose of forwarding this Paper, as well as for receiving communications for the Printer and Publisher: I beg leave to acquaint you, that is my intention to adopt this plan from the commencement of the New Year, and take this method of soliciting your assistance to collect subscriptions, at the rate of Eight Dollars (Barbados Currency) per annum; for which I engage to forward the paper punctually and regularly, by every opportunity, under a general envelope directed to the Postmaster of each Island or Colony, from whom the subscribers will receive them on application.
As it is absolutely necessary that I should be made acquainted with your number of subscribers on or before the last day of December, you will much oblige me by an early attention to this object, and by informing me accordingly; sending, at the same time, the amount of subscriptions for the whole or half year, in advance, in cash, or by an order on a responsible person in this Island, as the paper is not to be procured on any other terms.
I have the honour to be,
Dear Sir,
Your very obedient Servant,
Dep. Post Master Gen.

THE COMET. [heading]

(When first this said Comet appear'd to the view),
"Say, when vertical here, if the bush isn't fir'd,
What else will this blazing-tail'd wanderer do?"

"By my Saint!" he return'd, "if I do not forget
What I know of astronomy - none will deny it,
But what, should be make e'en the Sea wringing-wet,
You'll be fool enough, sir, to send, 'Tenders to dry it.'
