Transcription

RUN away from the subscriber the 11th of March last, a mustee fellow named Toney , has much the appear-ance of an Indian both in his hair and complexion, and is both a cooper and sawyer: Whoever takes him up within 20 miles of my plantation, and delivers him to me, or the warden of the work-house shall have 3 pounds reward, and if above 20 miles 5 pounds. All masters of Vessels and others are hereby cautioned from entertaining him in any shape whatever.
