Transcription

ON Sunday the 25th of June, was Stolen out of my plantation at Salketcher river a blackish colour'd gelding, between 14 and 15 hands high, mark'd WS on one of his buttocks, suppos'd by a run-away mulatto fellow belonging to mr. Drayton who was seen a few days before in the neighbourhood, giving out that he was a free man, and a carpenter by trade. Whoever brings the said gelding to me or to mr. John Reily at Spoon Savanna, shall have 10 l, reward besides all reasonable charges.
