FREDERICKSBURG, March 25, 1772.

I INTEND to leave the Colony soon after the April General Court, and request all Persons indebted to Heslop and Blair will come and settle their Accounts. It is expected that those who are not constant Customers to the Store, and whose Accounts have been standing upwards of twelve Months, will make immediate Payment, and prevent Suits, which in case of Failure, will be commenced against them without Respect to Persons. Payments will be made to those who have Balances in their favour. The Business, in my Absence, will be carried on, to its usual Extent, by my Partner, Mr. David Blair
