[reprints treaty of peace and amity between England and the United States]

The Subscriber having been granted, many years ago, (for services performed to the Colony) the Sole right of Cutting Timber on the land between Hababoe and Camoeny Creeks, aback of the Double Depths of the Estates in the River; and His Excellency Major-General Murray, having lately been pleased to confirm said Grant, reserving a right to these Estates that they have timber land aback to cut what they may require for their own use: - He (the Subscriber) therefore publicly warns every person not so entitled, from cutting on the said lands without his permission; and as there are a number of Negroes constantly in Hababoe with corials, on the pretence of hunting and fishing, as well as others taking up a temporary residence there on the pretence of curing themselves of sores and sickness, but who, it is suspected, have been in the habits of carrying on a correspondence between the Bush Negroes and those on the Estates in the neighbourhood - he also warns every person from allowing their Negroes to resort there on any pretext without a pass, otherwise they will be sent to the Barracks.
