Transcription

St. Thomas's Parish, April 12, 1774.
ABSENTED himself from the Subscriber, on Saturday the 9th Instant, BOB a Mulatto Fellow, upwards of 6 Feet high, thin Visage, knock knee'd, a Scar on one of his Legs occasioned by the Cut of an Axe about 45 Years of Age ; he was once the Property of Captain Akin. As he is remarkable artful and ingenious, it is supposed he will endeavour to leave the Province, or get into the back Country, and follow the Business of a Tanner, Shoe maker, Saddler, Carpenter, or Wheelwright: He has Money and Cloaths sufficient to make his Appearance suitable to his Intentions, and it is not improbable but he'll show some Kind of a Pass, which he might have got from some infamous Person. All Persons are hereby cautioned against the said Fellow, and whoever will deliver him to the Warden of the Work house in Charles-Town, or to any of the Country Goals, shall be rewarded agreeable to the Case, by
ROBERT JOHNSTON .
