October 5, 1739 - Geddy, Adams, Whiting

About Six Months since, a long Gun, about 6 or 7 Feet in the Barrel, was brought by a young Gentleman of Gloucester County, to me, the Subscriber, in Williamsburg, to be new Stock’d and Lock’d; and as I have some Reason to believe, that the Person who brought it is dead, and am desirous the right Owner should have it, I therefore give this Notice, that the Person who has a Right to it, may know where it is, and that he may have it, on proving his Property, and paying the Charges, to me, James Geddy.


A Small Box, with the Direction upon it, T. Adams on York River, Virginia, was brought into York River, this Year, by Capt. Whiting, in the Ship Whitaker; and there being no Bill of Loading given for it, nor Letter of Direction with it, not any Person come to claim it, it is therefore left with Mr. Beverley Whiting, Merchant, in Gloucester-Town; of whom the Owner may have it, on paying the Charge of this Advertisement.
