WHereas a negro man named BRISTOL, by trade a wheel-wright, belonging to Col. William Walter, had a permit in July last for one month, to out to work at his trade; since which he has absented himself, and has not been heard of, All persons are desired not to employ the said negro man; and if in any person's employ, they are desired to secure him in the work-house, or send him to the subscriber in Goose-creek, and all reasonable charges shall he paid by
SAMUEL LAVINGTON

RUN AWAY some time since, a ne-gro slave called BRISTOL, well known in the southern and middle parts of the province, as a remarkable good wheel-wright, and used to work out with a monthly ticket, but as person have a good while past harboured, entertained and em-ployed the said fellow without a ticket, by which I have lost above 30 l. I do promise a reward of Fifty Pounds to any person, who shall inform of his being harboured or employed by any person or persons whatsoever, so that the offender may be convicted thereof: And I will give to any person the sum Ten Pounds, who shall take the said fellow and deliver him to me, or to the warden of the Work-house.
WILLIAM WALTER .
All persons indebted tome for the work of the said fellow are desired to make payment to all unpaid by the 10th of January 1764. I will send wills and warrants for.
