Eight Dollars Reward.

ABSENTED himself, about a month ago, a negro fellow named Abraham, a Carpenter, formerly the property of James Smith. Had on, when he went away, a long blue great coat. He is about five feet six or seven inches high, and has a very sulky look; speaks very good English; about 35 years of age. It is imagined he lurks about Mr. Stoutenbourgh and Mr. Simmon's plantations on John's Island, as he has a father at Mr. Stoutenbourgh's.

Whoever will apprehend and deliver him to the Keeper of the Sugar House, or to No. 14, Guignard Alley in Charlestown, shall receive the above reward.
