Transcription

RUN away from Ninety-Six, on the 5th of this inst. November, two very likely dark mulatto slaves, the property of the subscriber viz. PETER and JOE; they are brothers, and both of them are shoe-makers, tanners, sawyers and joining carpenters : they are remarkably sensible and speak good English. Peter is a well set fellow, of a yellow complexion, and has a scar over one of his eye-brows, and has lost one of his toes; he had upon him when he run away, a country made cloth coat, a check shirt, leather breeches, and white negro cloth books. Joe has a large scar on one side, oc-casioned by the stab of a knife, and is somewhat longer than Peter , and somewhat darker: he had upon him when he went away, a green coat : they took with them two black horses belonging to the subscriber, and it is apprehended they will in-deavour to get to Augustine. Whoever apprehends the said two fellows, and delivers them to me in Amelia township, or to William Simpson, Esq; in Charles-Town, or to the warden of the work-house, shall be paid a reward of One hundred and fifty pounds currency by.
WILLIAM KILLINGSWORTH.
