A Ww4 of Advloo to Nortqrn 0redi
If Northern creditors wish to recover
a portion or the whole bf their claims
Agiindt the business diten of the South,
we will assure them that by adting upon
o,ur suggestions they will bQ More likely
to succeed in their object than they
would if they res-orted to hasty, sumniary
Ineasures. They must'be aware that the
S6uth is in it Impoverished condition ;
and,, no matter how anxious Southeing
lektom may be 0opay thqir, Northern
debs, they cannut do so until they sre
.*iaced in possosuion-ofT e. meane. At
preent we do '.not comprehend 'how
Northern creditors are to be bonefitted
by urging the adoption of a policy
whiqI tend, to'completely discourage
the ormer merchants of the South froin
again engaging I' business. We have

to tate, from our personal acqulintan-ce
