Taxes of 1838

I have received the Tax List for the year 1838, from the Clerk. All persons who owe Taxes in Chowan, are requested to pay the same by the last day of August, as that is the longest time that can be given for the payment. All such persons as failed to give in their taxable property for the year 1838 are hereby notified that they will be required to pay a two-fold Tax, as it is made my duty by law to require it. And in no case will any person be let off, unless according to law. For the better accommodation of persons living in the country, I shall attend all musters which may take place in this county from this time until the last of August, as above mentioned, for the purpose of collecting the Taxes due in the different districts, and shall expect the people to meet me punctually, and pay up.
            All claims against the County, properly authenticated, will be received in payment of Taxes.

            Wm. D. RASCOE, Sherriff.
Edenton, July 6, 1839.

[Albemarle Senteniel (Edenton, NC) 6 Jul 1839]
