Particular Notice – My friends up the River, who expect to make me a payment in Grain – are informed that Richard HALSTED will start in a Boat on Monday the 9th inst. for Tioga-Point and Owego, and that he will be ready to return by the 28th November. They are therefore earnestly requested to prepare and deliver Grain to the amount of one year’s subscription, (2 dols. 50 cts.) at the following places, by the 25th of the month.
Tunkhannock – Isaac OSTERHOUT
Braintrim – Capt. James WHEELER

All persons indebted will therefore take notice, That after the 15th day of January ensuing every unsettled account will be considered as neglected, and no reason for complaint on their part can exist, if the next Novice should be given by the proper officer. Zeb. BUTLER, Wilkesbarre.
