April 22, 1737 - Heylin, Lewis, Dove

On Monday last about Two o’Clock in the Morning, Mr. Heylin’s House in Gloucester Town, was robb’d by an Indian Servant of his, and a Mulatto Fellow belonging to Col. Lewis. They took away a Pair of Pistols, a Horse-Whip, and broke open a Trunk, out of which they stole some Clothes. They were seen the same Day about Eleven o’Clock, going up King and Queen. The Indian rode a Grey Stallion which he took belonging to his Master, and the Mulatto a Bay Horse, which belongs to Col. Lewis. They are supposed to be gone towards the Mountains, and from thence either to New-York, or North-Carolina. It is to be hoped that any Gentleman who meets with them will have them secured in order to their being brought to Justice, that Others, by their Punishment, may be deterr’d from the like daring Insolence.


We hear from Rappahanock, That Capt. Dove, in the Ship Charles, is arrived there from London.
