I FOREWARN all persons from trading for three notes of hand, given by
me to Robert Vann, sometime in the month of March last, each for two half red
dollars, first due in 1830, second in 1831, and the third in 1832, as I do not
intend to pay these unless compelled by law.

The Subscriber living at the Head of Coosa, Cherokee Nation, wishes to know where a certain young man now resides by the name of
JOHN H. GIBBS
by occupation a Printer, who a few months since came from McMinn County, East
Tennessee, and got employment at the office of the Cherokee Phoenix, at New
Echota for a short time; he was discontinued from that office in the latter
part of the summer, and has remained in the neighborhood of Ooukillegee, near
that place, until a few weeks ago, when he started from that place in common
with a gentleman who was going to Macon, Georgia. I am informed by that
gentleman, that said Gibbs went on to Macon with him and left him at that place
about the 24th or 25th August and started form Milledgeville, Georgia, to seek
employment during the sitting of the Legislature. If he should be at that
place or any part of the State, I should take it as a favor if some friend (to
Honesty and fair dealings) would let me know by mail; as said Gibbs has gone
off and has neglected to pay his book account with me, -- the account
he owes me is not much -- but information respecting him would no doubt benefit
some of his other creditors -- Mr. Gibbs is rather inclined to low built, about
five feet three or four inches high, dark hair, tolerably free spoken and has
a blemish in one of his Eyes, which prevents him from seeing much out of it.
It has become too common these hard times for those Broad-cloth-coat gentlemen,
if I may style them such, to make accounts in stores & move to another section.
They deserve the notice of public prints as much as high-way robbers, as they
are always on the lookout and ready to practice fraud on the public at large,
and they cannot be considered otherwise than Swindlers.
GEO. M. LAVENDER.
