April 3, 1746 - Lee, Huggins

Since our last, the Ship Christian, Capt. Lee, is arriv’d in Rappahanock, from London: by whom we have English Prints to the 18th of January; which contain the following material … Dantzick … Hambourg … Dresden … Frankfort … Rotterdam … Cork


Ran away last June, from the Subscriber, in Glocester County, a short, well-set Negroe Fellow, named Pompey: He is about 5 Feet 6 Inches high, talks good English, and is of a yellow Complexion: Had on when he went away, a Cotton Waistcoat, dy’d yellow, a striped Virginia-Cloth Jacket and Breeches, a Virginia Cotton Shirt, an old Pair of Shoes and Stockings; but I am since informed he has changed his Apparel.

Whoever secures the said Negroe, so that I many have him again, shall have Two Pistoles Reward, besides what the Law allows, paid by

William Huggins.
