Transcription

RUN away from the subscriber last Saturday night, a negro fellow named WATERFORD, a Taylor by trade, had on when he went away, a grey cloth surtout coat and a Bath coating waistcoat ; he is a tall slim fellow, with a scare over his left eye, and has an iron on his leg. Whoever delivers him to me at No. 17 Broad street, shall have Two Dollars rewards ; and whoever harbours or employs him will be prosecuted according to law.
Charlestown, Feb. 5, 1781. JOHN WARD.
