Library notes
Advertisement text: "To be sold at public Vendue, at 10 o'Clock in the Morning, at the House of John Thurman, jun. opposite to Mr. Nathaniel Marston, in Wall-Street, sundry Houshold and Kitchen Furniture; a very neat Looking-Glass, Tables, Chairs, Drawers, &c. sundry Books, a Catalogue of which may be seen at his House; some dry Goods and many other Articles.

N.B. All Persons that have Accounts still unsettled between his late Brother Francis Thurman, deceased, or himself, are desired to settle them immediately, as he certainly goes for London in the next Packet."
Unclear whether the books to be sold belong to Francis or to John; we have erred here on the side of Francis.
