my promise, I will make no charge.
T. B. J. HADLEY,
To the Traveling Public, Merchants,
Planters and others.
ipHERE having been a strenuous
1 effort of late to injure my char
acter, and destroy my business of Public
House keeping in this place, I take this
opportunity to state that, (those Jdnd
friends hving been defeated in their ex
pectations,) from this time to the end of
my lease, lam resolved to keep abetter
house than has ever been kept in this City,
(the Capitol not excepted) and having dis
posed of my Bar to young Gentlemen fa-
miliar with the business they will from
this time on keep it supplied with the
choicest Liquors, Wines, cigars, and all
other things that the best regnlated Bars
usually keep on hand. I have also dis-
posed of my (Divan) Restanrat formerly
attached to the Houston House, which is
now being fitted nphi magnificent style
the Hall abve fbgggSSSifeJ Saloon, and
the lower part afemeruHpEBar, Eating and
Club Room. ThisTiniiltliDsr is rented, and
will be kept by a GJetrtlemau who knows
his business well : thus confining myself
hereafter to the legitimrte business of Ho-
tel keeping, will be enabled to give my
visitors my personal attention, and will
use all reasonable efforts to give entiresat-
isfaction. My House is situated in the
very ccnti e of the business part of the
City, and only one squrefrom the Steam
Boat Landing. All the Mail Stage
OrncES are kept at this House and at
no other. My charges will continue the
same as formerly $1 25 per day and I
wish your patrouage.
