Transcription

RUN AWAY from the Subscriber, a negro man named Quamina, formerly belonging to Samuel Dunlap, of Ponpon, a short thick Ebo fellow, by trade a cooper, speaks little or no English, very well known in Charles-Town, where he is supposed to be harboured. Whoever harbours or entertains him, may expect to be prosecuted with the utmost rigor; but whoever brings him to me, or the work-house, shall have 3 Ł reward. Thomas Rose.
