RUN AWAY from the Sub-scriber, about twelve Months ago, a slim Negro Fellow, named JACOB, of the Shugar Country, about five Feet eight Inches high, and has worked sometime at the Wheelwright's Business: Had on when he went away, a Jacket and Breeches of white Plains. Also a short, thick, black Wench, named MARY, formerly the Property of Mrs. Boone, well known in Charles-Town, where she is supposed to be harboured: She is sometimes hired out as a Nurse, and other Times attends the Markets.

FIVE POUNDS Currency Reward, and reasonable Charges, will be paid to any Person that apprehends and delivers either of the above Run-aways to me in Charles-Town, or to the Warden of the Work-House, or at my Plantation at Ponpon or Indian Land: And THIRTY POUNDS will be paid for either of the above Fellows Heads, by
