This day came the said plaintiffs, by William Trimble, their attorney; and
the said Defendant Joseph Redding having failed to appear and plead, or
otherwise answer the said plaintiff's action, on or before the third day of
the present term of this court, and that the said plaintiffs, for and on
account of money paid, laid out, and expended, for the use of the defendant,
and for goods, wares, and merchandize, sold and delivered by the said

dollars and sixty-seven cents.
Therefore, on motion, it is ordered by the court, that publication be made
containing a statement of the nature and amount of the plaintiff's demand,
and notifying the said defendant that an attachment has been issued against
his estate, and that unless the said defendant shall appear, by himself or

term thereof to be holden on the fourth Monday in October next, at the court
house in the town of Murfreesborough, that judgement will be entered against
him, and his estate sold to satisfy the same.
And, on motion, it is further ordered by the court, that this order and
notice be published in some newspaper printed in this state, for four weeks
successively, at least four weeks previous to the next term of this court,
until which time this cause is continued.
