All persons are forbid harbouring or trusting the subscriber on his account; as he is determined to contract no debts after this date. He likewise give notice to other, that whatever business he may do, henceforth and forever, he is determined to have his pay for when the service is performed; NO TRUST is the order of the day--and it is equally beneficial to all concerned.
Hamilton, April 20, 1830
"There's tricks in all trades but ours."
J. W. being anxious to see his name in print as well as his neighbours, takes this method of informing the public, that he will at all times have on hand a general assortment of the most fashionable Chairs, which he will see for any price he can get. He will not, like many others, warrant his work to last for ever--nor to be sold at the lowest rate, but will at all times get what he can, and deal "just as he can light of chaps." Neither will he when his work begins to fall down about him, like some other mechanics, leave the country in the way most convenient to themselves.
