the latest importations, embracing
Cloths, Casslmerea and Pesiings of every colour dan
grade, Dress-Shirts, Under-Shirls, Drawers, Cravats,

an experienced Coat cutter, (and a pupil of Mr. Oliver's
in fact, having been Oliver and Procter's coat-cutter
for the last fourteen'months.) I shall have charge of the
pantaloons and vest department myself, and I have had
exclusive charge of it in the late firm tor the last five
Everything will be done that can be done, to give

To my Frieuds and Customers in 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 partner for 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 of 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 cutter 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 lor 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 mv customers scattered all over the State, and they
may rely upon being as faithfully served, having their
cloths, as well cut and made, and tne quamy oi me ma
terials just such as would be furnished, were The
BUG,' present in ' propria persona." I have laboured
hard to build uo a business in North Carolina, and desire
that those who have patronised me should continue to
uDhold mv late partner, particularly when assured by
me, that they will be as well served as they were under
the administration ol Oliver Sl frocter.
