RUN AWAY from the Subscribrr, at Charles-Town, on the 30th of August, 1770, Two NEGRO FELLOWS, one named NOVEMBER, and the other ABRAHAM, who were formerly the Property of Charles Minors, deceased, but now in the Care of the Subscriber. Abraham is of a middle Size, and of a yellow-ish Complexion.—November is very tall, and of a black Complexion:—They are both Ship-Carpenters, and well known in Charles-Town.—Whoever takes up the said Negroes, and de-livers them to me, or the Warden of the Work-House, shall receive TWENTY POUNDS Reward for each.—And, as it is suspected they are secreted and harboured by some white Person, I do hereby offer a Reward of FIFTY POUNDS, to any person who will discover the Offender or Offenders; to be paid on Conviction.
CORNELIUS DEWIES.
