p.2 past winters described - mentions the loss of schooner York on St. Andrews Day near Genessee River in 1798.

We have received a communication from one of three individuals who had a most miraculous escape from suffocation by incautiously sleeping in the cabin of the schooner Sons of Freedom, lying at one of our wharves this week, and burning charcoal with the hatches closed. The three men were simultaneously attacked with fits, and with the utmost difficulty were restored to animation. The accident would have been fatal to the whole crew had it not been for the vigilance of one of the party, who, unaccustomed to sleep in such a place, remained awake, and was thereby enabled to assist the unfortunate sufferers.

p.3 Notice - The stockholders of the John By are requested to pay into my hands on or before the 7th January next, a further instalment of 10% on each share.

David John Smith, Treasurer.
