Transcription

RUN Away from the subscriber a Negro Fellow, named POMPEY, a ship carpenter by trade, stout and well made, had on when he went away a fearnought coast and a Dutch hat. I was on my to St. Helena to have some livestock that has been there for these four years last past, it was on Mr. Fenwicke's Island that he made his escape. Whoever will take said fellow, and deliver him to the Warden of the Workhouse in Charlestown, shall have Two Dollars reward, and all resonable expences, from
JOHN IMRIE.
I also hereby forewarn any captain or master of any ship or vessel not to carry off, or encourage, the said negro fellow, as he is very cunning, and can tell a fine story; he is country born and speaks very good English.
