January 14, 1737 - Tillidge, Perrin

January 10, 1737. THE Snow John and Mary, Richard Tillidge, Master, that will carry about 240 Hogsheads, being a new Vessel, well rigg’d and fitted, lies now at Gloucester, in York River, ready to take in Tobacco for Bristol, on Freight, at the usual Rate, consigned to any Person there.

She will be a forward Vessel, great Part of her Loading being already engag’d; therefore those Gentlemen who are willing to ship their Tobacco to an early Market, are desired to be expeditious in giving their Orders.

It’s propose’d, that the said Snow is to call at Madeira, on her Return hither: Any Gentleman that have Occasion of Freight from thence, may agree for the same, by applying to Capt. John Perrin, at Gloucester, or the Master aforesaid; who will give their Attendance at the neighbouring Courts.
