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.
