1. Self-emancipated from John Fisher
Run away from the subscriber, on Saturday night, July 26, 1777, THREE NEGROES; one a mulatto fellow named Jamie, well known in Charlestown, and is remarkable for having a large scar on one of his ears and cheek; another fellow of the Guinea country, named Peter of a middle stature, who is very active and artful, but speaks very bad English; the third is a tall likely fellow of the Ebo country, named York. They may change their dress, but when they went away two of them had striped jackets. They are all bred to the cabinet making business. It is suspected they will attempt to go for St. Augustine by land or water. All masters of vessels and keepers of ferries are requested to be particularly on guard. A reward of FIFTY POUNDS for each, and all reasonable charges, will be paid on delivering them to me, or the Warden of the Work house in Charlestown. JOHN FISHER.
