LOWE and BERRY to fell their Shares on the cheapeft Terms, as well as Chances; the Puxchafer is fure of not being impofed on by buying bad Tickets, at their Office in Stationer's Ailey, Ludgate-Street, as they warrant them good and undrawn with their own Hands. They will not examine during the Hours of Drawing, and their Office being retired from the Noife of the Publick Streets therefore their Numerical Book is much efteemed for its Cont&nefc.--They fold the greateft Prize, that has been bought at any OfHce this Lottery about three Hours before it was drawn.
