When a person's character is assailed,
nn apology for intruding upon the Pub
lic would be deemed superfluous. On
my return from Petersburg, a few days
ago, I was surprised and mortified to
learn, that a report was in circulation
that I had run away, in consequence of
debt, which report I view as a vile as
persion; I have however returned, and
can give my creditors every assurance
of speedy liquidation if not entire dis

to defraud my creditors, there would be
no necessity (if I understand the Act of

scendant of respectable ancestry, I trust

esty and hope to die as I have lived,
honest man, in despite of the rancour
and malignity of those vile traducers of
