Transcription

RUN away from the subscriber's Plantation, a Negro Fellow named ABNER, a Cooper by trade, this country born, near six feet high, sensible and artful, and probably may assume the name of JACK, which he has taken before, well known in Charlestown, where he is either supposed to be, having worked there many years at his trade, or harboured at the Saltcatchers [Salkehatchie] by his Mother at the Rev. Mr. Simpson's. Whoever will apprehend the said Fellow, and deliver him to Mr. JOHNSON at Combahee Ferry, or to the Warden of the Work-house, shall receive a Reward of TEN POUNDS; or if harboured by a White or a Black, upon conviction of the offender, THREE GUINEAS.
GODIN GUERARD.
