WHEREAS a certain Robert Paterson
of Lexington, in Kentucky, by vir-
tue of pretended powers from me, has
made a conveyance to John Cockey Ow-
ings, of a certain settlement right in that
country, which I had previously sold to
Thomas Prather, deceased, I therefore
take this method to inform those whom
it may concern, that the said conveyance
is void, as said Paterson never had any
authority from me for so doing.

James Greer.

April 1789.
