TO BE SOLD: A Plantation . . . [by] JAMES JORDAN. From whom ran away, from the plantation of Thomas Bee, Esq; about the 20th of April last, two Guiney negro men, one named BOATSWAIN, a very black tall young fellow, his fore-teeth filed, but has none of his country marks, speaks pretty good English, is a pretty good cooper, and well known about Coosawhatchie; the other named CHARLESTOWN, is a short fellow, and speaks little English; both had on when they went away old white negro cloth jackets and breeches, and are supposed to be gone towards Edisto or up Ponpon river. Whoever harbours them may depend on being prosecuted, but whoever delivers them to their master at the aforesaid plantation, shall have 4Ł reward for each and reasonable charges.
