The Subscriber, resident at Oswego, in the State of New York, being advised, that a number of Casks of Wine had been picked up by individuals along the shore of Lake Ontario, and not entertaining a doubt that they are part of the cargo of the Schooner Margaret shipped by him to the care of J.M. Strange, Toronto, and during a severe gale last Autumn, thrown overboard, doth hereby request such persons who may have found any part or parcel of the said wine, to make known the same, by letters, addressed to him at Oswego, State of New York, or to W.B. Smyth, Esq., at Kingston, Upper Canada, and thus be entitled to the Salvage - otherwise legal measures will be taken for the recovery of the value thereof.
Charles Smyth, Jr., Oswego.
