AT an adjourned meeting of Holly Springs Lodge No. 35 held at the Masonic Hall, in the town of Holly Springs, Mississippi, June the 27h, A. D. 1839 A. L. 5839. It was unanimously Resolved, That Thomas D. Mason, member of said Lodge, be, and he is hereby expelled from the same and from all the rights and privileges of Free Masonry, for grossly immoral, dishonest and unmasonic conduct. And that publication thereof be requested of all Editors and Publishers of Newspapers friendly to Masonry throughout the world. E.D. WALKER, Secretary of Holly Springs Lodge No. 35.
Ordered by the Lodge that the following publication of facts and circumstances be made in order to guard the public against the intended fraud of LEVI H. ASHCRAFT, and THOMAS D. MASON, to-wit:
That from the evidence it has been clearly ascertained, that Levi H. Ashcraft and Thomas D. Mason, did combine for the purpose of defrauding and cheating the community by the issuance of shin-plasters or spurious checks upon the Union Bank of Tennessee, of the denominations of one, two, three, and four dollars, which shinplasters were to be signed by some fictitious name or firm, and passed off on the ignorant and unwary as money, and that they, ( Mason & Ashcraft) were not to be known as a part of the Company, nor were their names to appear upon the said shinplasters or checks, but that they, though the originators of the plan, were only to act as agents for the utterance of them, and that it was never intended to redeem said checks by the parties, but only to utter as many in Alabama, lower Mississippi, and Texas, before the scheme of fraud was detected as they possibly could; and in order that the public may be placed upon their guard against this intended fraud, as we fear that the said Thomas D. Mason is, at this time, traveling in the Southern part of this State or in Alabama, for the purpose of uttering them; we deem it necessary to give a description of said notes so far as we have any knowledge of them. The note that we can now procure is a note of the denomination of two dollars, which is printed on common bank note paper with a cut of two hearts pierced by an arrow, surrounded by a chaplet of roses and crossed by a horn of incense, with a figure (2) on each side of the device over the left- hand figure 2 is the abbreviation No. And over the right of figure 2, is the letter A., and the reading of the check now before us is in words and figures as follows:
UNION BANK OF TENNESSEE

ALL persons indebted to Moore & Jones and to Moore & Armstead, or the subscriber, are hereby notified that their notes and accounts must be settled up by the 15th of July next, as longer indulgence cannot be given.–I owe money myself, and those indebted to me must furnish the means of paying it.—Let none disregard this last call, except they are determined to pay cost.
