Transcription

RUN-AWAY from Mr. John Davies's plantation, at Ponpon, near Jacksonburgh, a MUSTEE FELLOW, named SAM, about five feet eight inches high, well made; has a scar on the top of his head, and commonly wears his hair tied; had on when he went away a purple negro cloth jacket and white breeches. It is supposed he will pass for a free negro, as he has formerly done: He is a good carpenter and cooper, and took with him some workman's tools. Whoever will deliver the said negro to the Warden of the Work-House in Charles-Town, or to the subscriber in Jacksonburgh, shall have Five Pounds reward, and all reasonable charges paid, by
JAMES RICHARDS.
March 29, 1770.
