Entry will be given at Whitsunday first, to the Crofts possessed by George Low, and the heirs of John Bremner, to any tenant who may take these; but to the whole of the others, entry will only be given to the present tenants, if preferred, at Whitsunday first -- or to the new tenants at Whitsunday 1819.

Every encouragement will be given to industrious and improving tenants; and James Dunbar, at Carnousie, will attend every Tuesday from 10 to 2 o'clock afternoon, at James Leslie's, Hillockhead of Clunie, and point out the marches of the Farms, &c.  both on Clunie and Knockorth - and at Carnousie every Thursday, till the day of Letting.
