SION OF THIE CoLnl'1N MORTAR,
Shrevoport, ' exas St..
EING : appointed Receiver under
B the provitsione of the act of the
Clonfederate States of America, enti..
tied "An Act for the. Sequestration
of the Estates, P1roperty and Effects
of Alien Enemies, &c.," for the sec
tion of the State comprising the par
ishes of Caddo, Dlc Soto, Sabine,
Bossier, Claiborne and Bienville, and
for which the Confederate Court holds
sessions at Shreveport. Therefore,
111 parties having business with the
office will confer a favor by commu
nicating their information in writing,
as far as practicable, stating names
of aliens, their domicils, nature of
property, where situated, supposed
value, and their own residences or
places of business, that they may be
called on for further information, as
each case comies up for examination.
Fear has been expressed that per
emaptory ldemand will be made for
payments of debts due to aliens, and
suininary means used i1 contiscating
their prpperty to the great detriment I
of thle community. 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 the rights
of the Governimeilnt without the least
dletriment to private interests, and as
much as possible without litigation.
Let an honorable loyalty be evin
ced in assisting the Receiver in es
tablishing those rights. Meet him
with an honiest intention to do no
wrong, and you may feel full assu
Vance that every facility, as urgently
demanded by tile exigencies of the
tines, will be extended in return.
For the information oi, the public,
I publishI the second an; d third sec
tilons of the act:
