Ran away from the Subscriber, living in Fredericksburg, a Negro Man, Tom; he formerly belonged to one Mack Morgan, of Bladen County, in North-Carolina, and was brought to Virginia by one George Warwood, a Stay-maker, who purchased him of the said Morgan. He is a middle siz'd Fellow, about 46 Years of Age, his Head and Beard are very grey. Had on a blue broad Cloth Vest, a Pair of black Everlasting Breeches, and a Chex Shirt; plays on the Violin, and is a Sawyer. Whoever will secure the said Negroe, and convery him back to me, shall have Four Pistoles reward.
