A BALE marked RM has been sent to the subscriber, in Augusta, through mistake from Norfolk, among other goods received from on board the Bristol, Capt. Howell, and the Virginia, Capt. Aselby, both from Bristol; it contains DUFFILS or BEARSKINS. As the expence of carriage will be considerable, and the owner may not receive them before the season be near gone, if he be inclinable to dispose of them he may know on what terms I will take them, by applying to Mr. James Maury, merchant, in Fredericksburg, who will treat with him for the subscriber. Otherwise he will order them back from Augusta and have them contrived as directed, the owner paying charges of carriage and advertisement.
