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, which is the pleasantest situation on the main street of any place in the 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 enclosed 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. [4]

Roger Dixon.

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, hhd. or quarter-cask, at the rate of 35. a pipe, for ready money.
