The Snow Black Prince, of and for London, now lying at York, John Sibson, Commander, being near loaden; those Gentlemen who intend their Tobacco by her, at Six Pounds per Ton, are desir’d to send it on board with all possible Speed; and those Gentlemen who have favour’d him with their Tobacco, are desir’d to send their Bills of Lading; for the said Snow will certainly sail on the 10th of August; but will take no Tobacco on board after the 6th.
