Transcription

RUN AWAY about 3 Weeks ago, a Negro Fellow, named Cuffee, bought at the Sale of the Estate of the late Mr. Joseph Mackey Carpenter, with whom he used to work, he is a short black Fellow, of a dull heavy Countenance, with one Leg bent, as tho' it had been broke, is known in most Parts of the Province, and now it's thought he's gone to Mr. Wallis's Plantation on Santee River. Whoever brings the said Cuffee to Capt. Wm. Pinckney in Charlestown, or to the Subscriber's Plantation on the Horseshoe Savannah, shall be well rewarded.
