NORFOLK, Jan. 3, 1770.
RUN away from the subscriber, the 13th of November last, a Negro fellow named BRISTOL, about 5 feet 8 inches high, very black, thick lipped, has lost some of his fore teeth, marked with the small-pox, and speaks good English, some French and Spanish. He was seen last month at Richmond, calling himself Tom, passing for a freeman, and may go out of the country as such. Any person who will secure him, so that I can get him, shall be paid Forty Shillings more than the law allows; and all masters of vessels are forewarned from carrying him out of the country, as he may impose on them by saying he is free.
[tf.] MAXIMILIAN CALVERT.
N.B. He hath been taken twice, and broke goal in Richmond and Fredericksburg; if taken again the gaoler is desired to iron him well.
