April 10, 1752 - Clerk, Willis

RAN away from the Subscriber, living in Gloucester County, on Sunday last, a Scotch Servant Man, named Alexander Clerk; he is of a middle Stature, fresh Complexion, and had on when he went away, a dark brown Wig, a Felt Hat, a blue Wastecoat and Breeches, Kersey and coarse Cloth, large Coat Sleeves to the Wastcoat, a white and check’d Shirt, and took with him two Razors; he cannot read. Whoever apprehends and secures him, so that I may have him again, shall have Two Pistole Reward, besides what the Law allows.

Francis Willis.
