WHEREAS my Negro Fellow JACK, a Taylor by Trade has absented himself for some time past from my service, and has been employed by several people in and about Dorchester. It is expected that those gentlemen he has been at work for, will call and settle with me ; and I do hereby forbid all persons whatsoever from employing him hereafter, without a written order from me, and an arrangement on their part to pay his wages to
FREDERICK GRIMKE.
