Transcription

RUN-AWAY from the subscriber, about four weeks ago, his negro boy JOE , well known in town and country, as he used to work at the jeweller's trade; he is very arch and sensible, was met with on Derchester road, supposed going to St. John's , as he has acquaintances at Mr. Harleston's plantation. Whoever takes him up, and delivers him to me, shall receive Two Dollars reward; if he is harboured by a white person, on full proof thereof, I will pay Twenty Dollars rewards, if by a negro, Ten Pounds .
