Shreveport, Texas St.
B EING- appointed Receiver under
the provisions of the act of the
Confederate States of America, enti
tled "An Act for the Sequestratiou
of the Estates, Property aid Effects
of Alicen Enemies, &c.,'' for the sec
tion of the State comprising tlao par
ishes of Caddo, )De Soto, Sabine,
Bossier, Claiborne and Bienville, and
for which the Confederate Court holds
sessions at Shreveport. Therefore,
all parties having busin'ess with the
office will confer a favor by commu
nicating their information in writing,
as far ias lracticable, stating names
of aliens, their domnicils, nature of
jproperty, where situated, supposed
value, and their own residences or
places of business, that they may be
called on for furtlher inforinmation, as
teach c;ase conses up for exanmination.
Fear lhas been expressed that per- II
e,-iptory d(emand will be made fr Air
IViymLents of debts due to aliens, and
suniiar'y rmeans used in contiscating
tlheir property to the great detriment
of the commrunity. This is a great
mistake. The Receiver will not
willingly throw any impediment in
the way of business, but hopes, in
every instance, to secure tihe rights
of the Goverimueit without the least
detrimtent to private interests, and asID
mutch as possileh without liti.ation.
Let an honorable loyalty be evin
ced in assisting time Receiver in es
tablishing those rights. Meet him
with an honest intention to do no ,
wr.,ng, and you may fieel full assu
rance that every facility, as urgently 1
demanclded by the exigenicies of the
times, will be extended in return.
"For the infornmation <d the public,
I publish the second and third sec
tions of the act:
