The President and Directors of the State Bank of North Carolina,

This Bill is filed by complainants to foreclose a mortgage executed to them by
Samuel P. Ashe, in August 1821, conveying to them a certain lot situate in Fayetteville,
at the foot of Hay Mount, on the north side of Hay street, on which stands a three story
brick house, where the said Ashe formerly lived; and a plantation on the Wilmington road,
2 miles below Fayetteville, called Spring Hill, joining Broadfoot's lands, --for the
purpose of having the same sold and the money applied to the payment of the mortgage debt.
And it appearing to the Court that Samuel P. Ashe had afterwards conveyed the first mentioned
tract to George T. Hearsey, who conveyed the same to Aaron L. Gomez, who assigned the same
to Solomon J. Isaacs. And that the said Ashe, Gomez, and Isaacs are not inhabitants of this
State; It is therefore ordered, that unless they plead, answer or demur to the Complainant's
Bill, on or before the next Term of this Court, the same will be taken pro confesso, and heard
exparte. William F. Strange, C & M.E.
