ALL persons are cautioned against trading for a note given by me, payable to Thomas House, for eighty or eighty-five bushels of corn, due in October or November last: and as the consideration for which the note was given has failed, I am determined not to pay the said note unless compelled by law.
THOMAS B. WATIE.
March 8th 1834
