Warning to Young Men.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.
You will confer a favor on many of your readers, and young men generally, but warning them of the many land sharks who seek to take in persons by partnerships, and selling out businesses, &c. I noticed an advertisement this very day of a man who lives only by swindling, in selling out trades and businesses by misrepresentation. I could mention another who operates on sewing machines, and has swindled successively three or four partners here and in Brooklyn, by taking them in with him, and then, by means of some relative, to whom he confesses judgment, or some other equally villainous plan, seizes all the assets of the [firm?]. By warning young men not to go into anything they do not understand, and with those only whom they know to be honest, you will follow the plan you have laid out in your journal of seeking the public good.
