Transcription

RUN away from the subscriber, about a month ago, a Negroe fellow named WILL by trade a Sadler, is well known in about about town, and is very artful, he is about five feet six inches high, had on when he went away an osnabrigs shirt, a pair of light blue cloth bretches, and a split shirt, and carried with him an old scarlet cloth coat faced with green; he has been lately seen over at Haddril's Point, where I suspect he is harboured. About the same time ran away another negroe fellow named CYRUS, formerly the property of Mr. John Walters Gibbs; he is about five feet four inches high, is remarkably thick-sett and very artful, by trade a shoemaker, had on when he went away a sailor's blue jacket, ozen-brig's shirt and bretches. Whoever will deliver them to me, or secure them in the Sugar-House, shall receive TWO GUINEAS for each, and all persons are hereby forwarned from hiring, entertaining or carrying either of them, on pain of being prosecuted to the upmost rigour of the law, by
JANE CALLAGHAN
No. 167, King-Street
