I DO hereby forewarn all persons from trading for two notes of hand, both payable to Joshua Holden, and signed by myself, and dated the sixth day of August 1827. One of said notes was due the 25th of December 1827 for one hundred yards of home spun. The other is due the 25th of December 1828, for one hundred and fifty yards of homespun; I am determined not to pay them, unless compelled by law, as the consideration for which they were given has failed.
