VOLUME THE TWENTY-FIFTH.
NO. 7, OXENDEN-STREET,
The last Additional Duty on Stamps HAVING
AVING taken place about the middle of the Season, 1797, the Proprietors of the Racing Calendar did not think it advisable to make any Advance in the price of Subscription for that year, confequently have borne the entire Burden themselves.
The Regulation they now propose to adopt, will only in part relieve them, but is such as for the present they are resolved to be satisfied with-it is merely to equalise the Subscription, by allowing in future, no exception whatever to the charge of a Guinea per Annum, which to a large majority of their Subscribers will be no Advance at all.
The Proprietors take this opportunity of foliciting a more prompt and regular payment of the Subscription Money, than has been customary with some of their Subscribers. The great increase in the price of Stamps, which must be paid for before they are made use of, renders an alteration in this respect highly neceffary.
