February 4 1823





BEGS leave to inform the Inhabitants of Strabane, and its Vicinity, that he has commenced Business in the House occupied by the late MR. WILLIAM WAUCHOB, where he intends carrying on the Woollen Business, in all its Branches. Having served an Apprenticeship of seven years, to one of the most respectable Houses in the Country, he flatters himself with having a perfect knowledge of his Business. The depressed state of the Market has enabled him to lay in his Stock at unusually low Prices, and can now offer to the Public Advantages, which, he hopes, will insure a Preference to his House.

T. Smyth, aware of the inconvenience and unnecessary trouble given to those unacquainted with Woollen Goods by Shopkeepers who ask second Prices, is determined to ask the lowest Selling Price, and from which no deviation whatever shall be made. It is by punctuality, light Profits, and determination to buy and sell for ready money, that he hopes to insure a share of public favour
