EZRA WITTER

Seneca Jan. 3, 1815



From Geneva Gazette 25 January 1815

TO THE PUBLIC

As EZRA WITTER saw fit to post his Wife, I think it my duty to let the public know what for. He took other women home, who talked very unbecoming, besides using very hard threats towards me. He likewise denied he had any wife, said he had women enough without me, and would not part with them but by reason of the disease which afterwards appeared to his shame. I thought it best to stay at my own place.
