Transcription

RAN AWAY on Monday the 23d of March last, a short, well made black negro fellow, named GIBB, who formerly belonged to Richard Bailey, de-ceased, has served many years to the taylor trade, and wrought this last year with Mr. Christopher Beard, taylor at Chehaw, and probably he may have gone that way. Whoever will give information of any person harbouring the said fellow, so that the offender may be brought to justice, shall receive Twenty Pounds reward, or will deliver him to me at the Round O, or to the warden of the workhouse, in Charlestown, shall receive Ten Pounds reward, and reasonable charges from
THOMAS BUER.
