Transcription

Run away from the subscriber on the 18th of September last, a negro fellow named Tony, a blacksmith by trade, and well known about Pocotaligo, formerly the property of Mr. Fitz; also his wife Flora; she has a scar on one cheek, and a blemish in one eye. They are suspected to be harboured about the Saltcatchers. One hundred pounds reward will be given for delivering them to me on St. Helena Island.
WILLIAM FRIPP.
