THE dwelling house in Fredericksburg, with all the outhouses, and near a lot and a half of ground where I formerly lives; also two lots, with stables for upwards of twenty horses, and a room for carriages. The above would suit a publican extremely well, the house being very commodious for that purpose, as there is a large room 40 by 20, one ditto 17 by 20, two 17 by 10, all with fireplaces, and a hall 20 feet square between the two buildings, with a porch on each side, and five rooms above stairs, three of which have fire places. The large room would make a good ball room or a good store room, and the back building would suit a merchant with a family. For sale also, a large building erected for a BLOMARY. With three lots of ground, that might easily be converted into a glass house, which is much wanted in this colony, and might be plentifully supplied with good cinder and proper sand, on easy terms. The above building would make a good THEATRE, which might be very beneficial to the town in general, and country adjacent, if proper persons, and of good demeanor, were to perform. For terms apply to the agent, who will return an answer with expedition.
