RUN AWAY, about the 16th inst. a Negro Wench named SAL, about twenty years of age, but appears younger, sizeable and handsome, pert and sensible. It is supposed she has gone off with a light-complexioned negro fellow, much pock-marked, who says he is free, and was call away some short time since near Cape-Hatteras, in the sloop commanded by Capt. Snell.--It is probable they have gone towards Virginia, and will endeavour to get off farther northward. Whoever will secure said wench so that she may be had again, shall receive FIVE POUNDS reward, and TEN POUNDS if delivered at Edenton, together with said fellow, and all necessary and reasonable charges. WILLIAM GREGORY. Edenton, August 26, 1790.
