20 DOLLARS REWARD
RANAWAY from the Subscriber's plantation, in Jones county on the 21st
October last, his Negro Man Joe : he is about 5 feet 8 inches high,
black complected, in his common walk goes bent forward in his knees,
his toes rather inward, has a large scar on one of his hands,
occasioned by a burn, and a small piece of one of his ears has been bit
off in fighting--he had on when he went away, a pair of blue twilled
cloth trowsers, a tow and cotton shirt and strawhat, and carried a
fiddle with him. He has relations in or near Wilmington, at the
plantation of Col. Cowens, where most probably he will aim to get.
All persons are forwarned from employing, harbouring, or conveying
said fellow away, under the penalty of the law.
The above reward, will be given to any person who will apprehend said
fellow, and deliver him to me in Jones county, or confine him in jail,
so that I get him again.
