Newbern, January 8.

Whereas the Congress of Delegates for the United States of America have recommended it to the different States of the Union, that loan offices should be established in each of them for the purpose of borrowing money to support the present war, and the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina, having established one in the town of Newbern, to receive all such monies as may be lent in this State, pursuant to the resolutions of said Congress; I hereby give notice that I am ready to receive into said office any sum or sums of money (not less than 200 dollars from any one individual) for the purpose above mentioned, on the receipt of which certificates will issue to the lenders for the amount, bearing an interest of fixed per cent.
