joint as well as separate property of the said Gen'le
men, is, and ought to be, liable. And whereat
it is clearly and fatisfa&orily ascertained, that mr.
Blair M'Cienachan, of the laid firm, has conveyed,

as well as eonfidcrable personal property, in the city

THE caption introduced int« the public prints,
warning all persons againlt purchasing from the
grantees of Blair M'Clenachan, any portion of the
1 large, real and petfonal eliatcs he conveyed away to
1 his fon-in law and to his children was the result of
a deliberation had upon thefubjeft by a general and
. numerous meeting of the erwlltors as well of Blair
M'Clenachan and P Moore as of Blair M'Clena
chan individually. It was no more than an execu*
tion of that trust confided in the fubferibers bf
those creditors ! a step which it would have been a
, breach of duty and honor in them to have omitted.
1 The very ftatcoient of the fadt therefore rauft dif
| pel the imputation that it was either " precipitate
. or vindi£Hve." It originated in a defile to secure
; the property of the debtor as a fund for the pay
• mentof his just debts. It was fan&ioned by the
; advice of council as a measure mcejary to the fafety
i of the crfcditors. If (he advertisement has been
: i injurious to Mr. M'Clenachan he owes that injury
: ito his own unjuftiiiable eonduiS, not to the sub
, fctibers who have merely published the truth in
terms as mild as the fadi would admit, and vvh»
mean to investigate in a high court of justice the
validity of those purcbafes of whieh Mr. M'Cle
nachan so confidently speaks.
The fubferibers therefore are bound by a sense,
of duty to the creditors in general to repeat their
caution againlt purehafing of tbofe grantees or
either of them, and to extend the terms of it to a
purchase from'any other persons (if such there be)
to wkom Mr. M'Clenachan may have made similar
