To be Lett, and entered upon immediately, the WHITE HORSE, at Old Buckenham, in Norfolk, and old established Public-house, in full Trade, now in the Occupation of James Foulsham, who has carried on the Spirituous Liquor Trade in the Wholesale Way, which may be an advantageous Branch to the succeeding Tenant, with a proper Capital, as none but such will be treated with.
    For Particulars enquire of Brightwen and Jackson, Diss, Norfolk.
