Splendid Opportunity
For Horse Breeders, Graziers and Agriculturalists
Farms to Let in the Somerset District
To Let, for a term of years, the well-known Farms
Possessing never failing streams of water, capable of irrigating 300 acres of land.
This property also claims pre-eminence to any within the neighbourhood for grazing, as the flocks of sheep and well-known breed of Vaderland cattle so frequently exhibited by R. HART Esq has proved; but as a horse farm it is not surpassed in the Colony, and presents to breeders all that is desirable for supplying the Indian Cavalry.
The farm is extensive and is bounded by the lands of the Somerset Municipality and Glen Avon, and lately cleared of the extensive flocks of the Messrs. WAINWRIGHT. For further particulars as to terms and extent apply to Robert HART Esq Senior at Glen Avon.

Butcher and Baker
Takes this opportunity to announce to the inhabitants of Port Elizabeth and its vicinity that he intends opening, on or about the 15th instant, a Butchering and Baking Establishment, and he trusts by keeping a constant supply always on hand of the best quality Meat and Bread to merit a share of public patronage.
