George Copland, Dyce


WHEREAS some evil disposed person or persons have lately propagated a report that GEORGE COPLAND, Farmer and Shoemaker at Pitmedden, in the parish of Dyce, has been in the practice of employing himself as a common Informer, seemingly with intent to ruin him in the estimation of his friends and neighbours, and thereby to work the overthrow of him and his family; and as the charge is false and totally without foundation, on his part, he hereby offers a Reward of TEN GUINEAS to any person who will give such information as may be the means of bringing the first propagator of this false and malicious libel to justice and conviction.

Dec. 18, 1813.         GEORGE COPLAND.

Published in the Aberdeen Journal, Wednesday 22nd December 1813.
