Transcription

RUN away from the subscriber the beginning of August, PRIMUS, a short well set fellow, of a yellow Complexion, about five feet three inches high, very artful and cunning; was formerly the property of Mrs. Elizabeth Wise, who had purchased him from Alexander Gowen, a free negro, of St. Bartholomew's parish, by trade a carpenter, at which business Primus wrought for many years about Ponpon, where probably he may be harboured. He had on when he went away a short blue coat and robbin. I will give TEN POUNDS to any persons who will deliver the said fellow to the Warden of the Workhouse, or to me near Dorchester, and a farther reward on proving his being harboured either by white or black persons.

WILLIAM MORGAN.

Who is in immediate want of an OVERSEER; One that can bring an approved recommenation of his honest and sobriety, will meet with good wages, and if he understands Indigo, he may be employed yet a long time.
