December 17, 1736 - Rand, Dupree, Field

Ran away, about the Beginning of November last, from Mr. William Rand, a Carpenter and Joyner, in Gloucester County, a Servant Man, named Thomas Field; he is an Irishman, and a very good Joyner. ‘Tis believed he is dressed in White Cloth Cloaths, a light colour’d Wig, and has Ruffles at the Bosom and Sleeves of his Shirt.

He took with him a Bay Horse, with a Star in his Forehead, some Saddle Spots, one of his hind Feet white, from below the Footlock into the Hoof, and a Switch Tail; which Horse belongs to Mr. John Dupree, in Williamsburg. He is supposed to be gone to Carolina, and perhaps as far as Georgia. Whoever will secure and bring the said Servant to his Master aforesaid, shall have Two Pistoles Reward, besides what the Law allows, paid by

William Rand.

*** And if any Person will bring the said Horse to me, in Williamsburg, he shall have Two Pistoles Reward; or give Notice of him, so that I may have him again, shall be generously satisfy’d for his Trouble, by me,

John Dupree.
