TO THE PUBLIC.
In March last I addressed a private
letter to William Searight, a copy of which
will be found below. It was written in
a friendly spirit and intended to induce
him to do me justice in a case in which
his oath had wronged mo out of more than
1600 dollars. He never noticed my let

I was a contractor under him. lie is
