Martyn [sic] Smith, proprietor of the Royal Victoria Coffee House, Pitt-street, Sydney hereby cautions shopkeepers and others, not to give credit to any person whatever without his written order, as Mr. S. will not hold himself responsible hereafter in consequence of his late Waiter having recently absconded, and obtained goods from various shopkeepers without M. S.’s sanction in any way or manner.
Martin Smith, by this opportunity begs to return his most sincere thanks to the public generally, for the very liberal patronage bestowed on him since the opening of his Refreshment Rooms; and M. S. further begs to assure his numerous patrons that no exertions on his part shall be wanting to merit a continuance of the same.
A good active Waiter wanted immediately. Character for honesty and sobriety required.
Sydney Morning Herald, Monday 1 August 1842.
