If I was to sav that I sold all the hidi

of Tickets having advertised that they
sold them ALL. Let them have the
credit my customers know what I have
done, and will long recollect with plea
sure the fjrst class of the Virginia State
Lottery. Certainly every person that
ever purchased a Ticket in any Lottery,
will not let the present pass; as the pre
