Sherborne Mercury 25 Sep 1797

Ilchester, Somerset

J. BACKHOUSE, Grocer, Draper, Ironmonger, Hatter and Hosier, returns his most grateful thanks to his friends and customers, for their kind attention to him the many years he has had the happiness of receiving their favours, and informs them he has declined business in favour of Mr. GUMBLETON (late with Messrs. J. and W. Ensor, Sherborne) whom he begs leave to recommend to their notice, not doubting but that from a strict attention to their commands, he will be found deserving their countenance and support.

Mr. Backhouse likewise takes this opportunity of requesting all persons who have any claim or demand on him to send their accounts directly, that the same may be fully satisfied; and all those any ways indebted to him are desired to pay the same on or before the 31st of October next, or they will be proceeded against without further notice.

ROBERT GUMBLETON having entered on the above business, begs leave most respectfully to solicit the favours of his friends, those of Mr Backhouse, and the public in general, and being determined to render his goods on the best terms, and pay the strictest attention to the orders he may have the honour of receiving, hopes to merit their generous encouragement.

Dated September 16, 1797.
