Transcription

Ran away from the subscriber, abut twelve
months ago, A Black slim negro fellow named TOM, who formerly wrought at Mr. Rood's tan-yard at Ashley-Ferry, and is supposed to be harboured thereabout; had on when he went away, a short double-breasted blue coat with small gilt buttons, and coarse red breeches. Whoever harbours or entertains the said run-away, will be prosecuted with the utmost severity: but whoever delivers him to Mrs. Elizabeth Chanler in Charles-Town, Mr. William Sterland at Stono ferry, or to me, shall have Ten Pounds reward, besides all reasonable charges.
SAMUEL CHANLER.
