De weels of time, habing been pretty well
grease de pass year, hab brought along once more de
nannibersary of de day which it be de pleasure, as
well as de duty of ebery true son of Africa, to sel
lebrate in a suitable manner, demonstrashumable of

If de wedder be fair in de mornin, 64 pop-gun
will be let off, to gib notice to de public dat de sun
rise wid a smiling face, and send de clouds all a
scamperin, as Misser Shakespole say. De Marhsal
will take speshal care to be on dare post at de ushal
place of parade, in Masum-Treet, at persizely 9
o'clock, a little before or a little arter. If he no

to move forrerd right foot first, and not leff as dey
did lass year, for de sake of variety. De Marshal
will each be attended by a boy wid a waterpot, to
see dat de dust is properly laid. Dis is consider

were half choke wid de dirt, and no one wish to
eat he peck of dirt all at once.
De Prosseshum will move de shortest way to
Bullnob Treet, by de way of Long-wharf and de
Soth-end. Ebery member of de Sochietee will
wear an Elephant Tail in he hat, to denote dat
sich kind of vegetable grow bery plenty in Africa.
When de prossebum hab arribe at the Meetum
House, de Orator ob de day will deliber a mose
hellegant norashum, which will be more tickerly
notice fore shortly herearter. Arter de exumcise
be ober de company will dejourn to de spacious
