1 have been induced to make the above lib '
eral oilers in order to remove a settled objec
tion in the minds of your committee, to hav-
ing the distribution take place while there
remain in my hands tickets unsold, and for
w hich cause they have seen fit to defer the
partition of the gifts, w hich was fixed for the "
27th inst., to the 5th of July, as will be seen
by reference to their proceedings, published
below. 1 assure you that the postponement
is as vexatious to me as it is to those who
have purchased tickets. 1 therelore hope that
each and every one now interested, will co
operate with me in the effort to dispose of the
lew thousand tickets remaining unsold, and
thus advance the interests of the whole body
of shareholders. Respectfully yours,
