It continues saying that "Mr. bacon will be indebted by an early call from those to whom it may be convenient as on a fomer occasion, during the latter days of exhibition his study was so crowded as seriously to incommode the visitors. Hours of Exhibition from 11 to 4, 17 newman St,, Feb[ruary] 9 1813. N.B. It is particularly requested that no presents may be made to any of the servants or attendants".
