Thursday, August 14, 1746. Number 524. Page 3, Column 2.

Ran away from the Subscriber living in Your Town, about 3 Weeks ago, a lusty well-set Negroe Man, named Boomy, about 29 Years of Age; he squints much, and is a Virginian born. Had on when he went away, a blue Waist-coat, a red ditto, and other wearing Apparrel. It's supposed he is gone towards Fredericksburg, where he ran once before. Whoever brings him to me in Your Town, shall have a Pistole Reward, besides the Allowance by Law.

William Lightfoot
