Ran away on the 4th Instant, from the Subscriber, in Glocester, a Negroe Man, named George; had on when he went away a Fear-nothing Waistcoat, blue Breeches, Pladd Hose, and a Pair of Shoes: He carried off a Canoe, and is suppos’e to be gone to Rappahanock. Whoever takes him up, and conveys him to me, shall have a Pistole Reward, besides what the Law allows.
