Transcription

RAN AWAY, from my wharf at Hobcaw, a tall slim negro fellow, named CORNISH, brought up to the carpenter and caulker business, of the Angola country, had on when he went away a blue jacket and osnaburg trowsers. Whoever delivers him to me, or the warden of the work-house, shall receive FIVE POUNDS reward.

DAVID LINN.
