[Notice to J——C——for selling Ardent Spirits contrary to law.]
C——. Sir, Whereas sundry complaints have heretofore been made to the Selectmen
, but no formal ones until recently, of your selling Ardent Spirits & giving them away to towns people contrary to law, and particularly on the Sabbath.
You are hereby notified that unless you put a stop to it, the strong arm of the law will be enforced upon you. We would sincerely advise you as friends to avoid a repitition of the offence, so as to give us no further trouble, if it is repeated we shall be obliged to enforce the law.
