Transcription

Ten Dollars Reward. RUN AWAY, Harry, who was sent to me by his Mistress, Mrs. Sophia Desering, to go to Combahee, has taken advantage of his Mistress's letter, and gone to work at the cabinet maker's business in Charles-town upwards of six weeks since. I do offer a reward of one
hundred pounds to any person that will give information of his being employed or harboured by a white person, and
twenty if by a negro; or the above reward of Ten Dollars to any one that will deliver him to the Warden of the Workhouse, or to me at Combahee.
JOHN PACKROW.
