To my Friends aud Customers lu North Carolina.
HAVING made arrangements to leave the State, at
furthest by the first of December, and having dis
posed of my interest to Isaac Procter, (my partnerfor the
last eight years,) I take pleasure in recommending him
to those who have stood by me so long, as a gentlemen
every way worthy ot their confidence and support.
I look upon Mr. Procter, without attempting to dis
parage others, and what I say now must be believed,
(being totally disconnected with him in business) as be
ing the very best cutler I ever saw. He will be assis
ted by Geo. L. Gould, a pupil of' mine, who has been
cutting all the Coats made up for our customers for the
last fourteen months, and has no superior in that depart
ment. I have left in the concern all the patterns I have
of my customers scattered all over the State, and they
may rely upon being as faithfully served, having their
clotns, as wen cut and made, and the quality oi tne ma
terials just such as would be furnished, were The
BUG.' present in propria persona." I have laboured
hard lo build up a business in North Carolina, and desire
that those who have patronised me should continue to
uphold niv late partner, particularly when assured by
me, that they will be as well served as they were under
the adtninis'ration of Oliver &. Procter.
