Absented himself from the Subscriber, on Saturday the 9th instant, Bob, a Mulatto Fellow, upwards of Six Feet high, thin Visage, knock-kneed, a Scar on one of his Legs occasioned by the Cut of an Ax, about 45 Years of Age. He was once the property of Capt. Aiken, is remarkable artful and ingenious. It is supposed he will endeavour to leave the province, or get to the Back Parts and follow the Business of a Tanner, Shoemaker, Sadler, Carpenter, or Wheelwright. He has Money and Cloaths sufficient to make his Appearance suitable to his Intention, and it is not improbable, but he may shew some Kind of Pass, which he might have got of some infamous Person. All Persons are hereby cautioned against him, and whoever will deliver him to the Warden of the Work-House in Charles-Town, or to any of the Country Gaols, shall be rewarded agreeable to the Case, by

ROBERT JOHNSTON.
