Transcription

RUN AWAY from Roger Saunders , on Saturday the 22nd Inst. an Indian Man, named Peter, which formerly belonged to Mr. Thos. Elliot Sen. deceased, he is a good Carpenter and Wheelwright, a short well set Fellow, pretty much mark'd with the small Pox in his Face. Whoever brings him to me at my Plantation at Ashley-River, shall have 5 l. reward, he has eloped from me several Times, and generally has been taken up on the Town Neck. Also run away about two Years since, a Negro Man, named Abram, who is a good Sawyer, middle sized and middle aged, and speaks broken English, he formerly belonged to Major Tobias Fitch, I have a good deal of Reason to think that he is harboured sometimes about Four hole Swamp, sometimes about Mr. Baccots at Goose Creek, and sometimes on the Town Neck, he having been frequently seen about them Places, and not long since on the latter. Whoever apprehends and brings him to my Plantation above mentioned, shall have 20 l. reward.
