I HEREBY forewarn all persons from harboring and trading with SELAH BLACKWELL, on my account, as she has never been legally my wife. I have sufficient evidence to prove that the said Selah Blackwell is the lawful wife of one Mr. Young. I therefore solemnly protest against any proceedings either in law, or in any other way, against me on her account.
