Cornhil!, London, oppofite the Front Gate of the Bank of England; he having engaged to pay on demand, without the fmalleft Deduction, every Prize in full as foon as drawn, viz. 20I. for every 20I. Prize, 25,000!. for the 25,0001. Prize, and the fame for all other Prizes in the Lottery. Not-1 withftanding this great advantage, he charges no } more than every other Qfiice of eftabli.h.ei- credit. It is here neceffary to inform the Public, that as there are many perfons iffuhu* fpurious Mcdes of Adventuring, there are no legal Shares whatever but fuch as a^ ftamped at'his Majefty's Stamp-Office with a aiy Stamp, and have tkpfe words thereon, " State Lottery, Stamp-Office." Ten Pounds will be paid as fcon as drawn ibr the Half of a 20I.

Of all the Propofals, that have been made to the Public, Year after Year, with a View to recommend the purchafing of Lottery Tickets and Shares, no Engagement was ever offered fo perfeftly liberal as that now advertifed by HORN sb Y fJ Co. at their old eftablifhed Office; in CoRHhiLL ; for, whereas it has ever (hitherto) been cuftomary to hold back a very confi-derable Difcount, on the Payment of all the Prizes, even fome Months after they have been drawn!-It appears, from HORNSBY's Adver-tifement, that they fpiritgdly refufe to take Advantage of any former Cuftom, and generoufly offer to pay the full Amount of every Prize from a �20 to a ^25,000, and that too, on the very Day it is draivn. So handfome a Propofal as this, � fo valuable and fo profitable a one, to their nu-.merous Cuftomers, cannot fail of general Approbation, and Acceptance. The Public cannot fail to diftinguifh the extraordinary Advantages that muft.arife from purchafing at that Office; more efpecially when it is confidered; that, in cafe of having the leading Capital, they will fave the nett Sum of �500 Sterling, by being paid in full, and on every Prize in that Proportion : So that, on the fmalleft Prize of ^7,0, Eight Shillings is clearly faved. The Demand for Tickets and Shares at that Office, fince tbeir Advertifement firft appeared, has been unprecedented in the Annals of � the Lottery. - To the CL E R G Y.
