Transcription

RUN away from one of governour Wright's plantations in Georgia, in October last, three NEGRO MEN, named Cato, Bullock and Ned . CATO is Carolina born, a tall slim lad, about 20 years old: BULLOCK is about 40 years old, of the Angola country, a very good sawyer, and formerly belonged to captain Lempriere at Hobcaw, where he is well known: NED is a short well made fellow, about 30 years old, was purchased a new Negro from Guinea in the year 1754. They crossed over Savannah river at Purrysburgh, and are supposed to be gone towards Santee, where they lived several years, or may have taken higher up into the back settlements. Any person who will deliver them, or any of them, into me in Charles-town, or to governour Wright at Savannah in Georgia, shall have a reward of FIVE POUNDS STERLING for each, besides reasonable traveling charges: and any person who harbours them, or any of them, may depend on being prosecuted with the utmost severity.
