Transcription

RUN AWAY on the 9th of July last, from the plantation of Mr. Barnard Elliott, deceased, at Horse-Savannah, three negro men, named Siah, Monday, and Jack. Siah about 6 feet high, and 50 years of age, of a yellow complexion, supposed to hire himself as a boatman or caulker, but is a shoe-maker by trade. Monday about 5 feet 9 inches high, about 25 years of age, pretty thick, and both a cooper and sawyer by trade. Jack, a young black fellow, about 5 feet 4 inches high, of no trade. Whoever delivers either of the said negroes to me in Charles-Town, or to Mr. Barnaby Cockfeild at the said plantation, shall receive 5 Ł reward for each over and above what the law allows: But whoever will give information of either of the said negroes being harboured, so that the offender may be convicted shall have 10 Ł reward. Barnard Elliott.
