December 29, 1738 - Hayes

As the Tobacco-Law, made the last Session of Assembly, relates to most of the Inhabitants of this Colony, and is in Force immediately from the last Day of the Session; I thought I could not take a better Method for making it generally known, and for Dispatch too, than by publishing it in the Gazette: And, I hope, it’s Usefulness will be an Attonement for the Place it takes of News.

An Act, for further Continuing and Amending the Act, for Amending the Staple of Tobacco; and for preventing Frauds in His Majesty’s Customs.

... And that new Public Warehouses be erected at the following Places: That is to say, Upon the old Plantation of Thomas Hayes, Gent. deceas’d, on the East Side of Easternmost River, in the County of Glocester: And that the Rent thereof, be Ten Pounds per Annum; and the Salary of the Inspectors, Thirty Pounds per Annum to each Inspector.
