To be SOLD, or RENTED for a term of years,

THE DWELLING-HOUSE and two LOTS where Mr. James Hume now lives, in the town of Fredericksburg. It has the most pleasant situation on the main street of any place in Town. The House is very commodious, having four good Rooms and two Closets below Stairs, and two Rooms above, four fire Places, and very good dry Cellars. The Out Houses are very good, being all new, viz. A Kitchen, Dairy, Meat-House, Stable, &c. and several convenient Yards; the whole well inclosed with Locust Posts and high Paling. There is also an exceeding good Well of Water on the Premises. It will suit either a Merchant or Tavern Keeper. The terms may be known by applying to me.


N.B. I have still remaining on Hand between 2 and 300 Sterling worth of European Merchandise, which I will sell a great Bargain; also good Maderia Wine, by the Pipe, Hogshead. or Quarter Cask, at the rate of 35 per Pipe, for ready Money.
