fN the first day of June next, the
houses at Shocco Springs, nine miles
South of Warrenton and three miles
from the Northern and Southern main
Stage roads, will be opened for the re
ception of Visitors. The great advanta
ges of this watering place in most cases
of disease and debilily, have been so of
ten tested by those who have attended
it, that to such, it is only necessary to
say, thai alj the buildings are in excel
lent repair and condition. The accom
modations, in every respect, shall be
such as my best efforts can effect, for
comfort and convenience to all who may
visit the place. To those who have not
yisited Shocco, it may be necessary to
say, that the buildings are sufficiently
numerous, and conveniently arranged
for the accommodation of a large assem
blage. The private apartment? will af
ford ample retirement to those who pre
fer it, and the ppblic Halls are abundant
ly spacious to receive all who may de
sire company, and where music and
dancing can be enjoyed by such as de
light in it.
An arrangement will be made to have
divine worship performed at the Spring
on the Sabbath day, where such visit
ors as may choose, can attend preaching
In addition to the valuable medicinal
qualities of the Shocco waters, it is loca
ted in a most healthy part of the county,
surrounded by a polished society, where
the inyalid can be restored to health, in
an agreeable circle.
My terms for board, &c, will be the
same as last year, viz: Si per day for
each grown person; $22 50 per month,
or $G per week.. .Children and servants
half price. For horses, 15 per month,
or CO cents per day.
