- —— ——.— ~
THE caution introduced into the public
wafning all persons against purchasing from the
jranteesof Blair M'Clenachan, any portion of the
n large, real and ptrfonal ellates h(e conveyed' away to
n his fon-in law and to his children was the result of
a deliberation had upon the fub}e£t by a general and
- numerous meeting of the creditors as well of Blair
M'Clenachan and P. Moote as of Blair M'Clena
chan individually. It was no more than an execu
tion of that trust confided in the fubferibers by
those creditors: a step which it woold have been a
m bieach of duty' and honor in them to have omitted,
id The very ftatcment of the fa£l therefore mull dif
*• pel the imputation that it was. either " precipitate
or vindifliVe." It originated in a desire to frcure
the property of the debtor as a fund for the pay
ment of his just debts. It was fan&ioned by the
j' advice of council as' a rtreafure necejfary to the fafety
of the creditors. If the advertisement has been
le injurious to Mr. M'Clenachan he owes that injury
50 to his own unjuftitiable conduiS, not to the iub-
fcribers who have merely publilhed the truth in
i g terms as mild as the fadt vfoilld admit, and who
a ' mean to investigate in a high court of justice the
validity of thile purchafeSj of whicb Mr. M'Cle
naehan so confidently speaks.
d Tfee fubferibers therefore are bound by a sense
of duty to the creditors in general to repeat their
]' caution. againtl purohafing of those grantees or
jf either of them, and to extend tbe terms of it to a
at purehafe from any other persons (if such there br)
