Runaway, Daniel, from Robert Eastburn 1796
Twenty Dollars REWARD
RAN AWAY from the subscriber, on the 19th inst. a Mulatto man named DANIEL, 30 years of age, about 5 feet 4 or 5 inches high, has a scar over one of his eyes, and another on his forehead, a bushy head of hair, and will try to go for a freeman, as I am well convinced he has a pass with him. It is probable he will change his name, having done so once before. When he went away he had on and took with him a blue coat, half worn, with yellow metal buttons, a striped Swansdown waistcoat, one striped ____ ____ ____, a pair of Beaver coating, overalls, one pair of ______ breeches, half worn, two Oznabourg shirt, a pair of home made blue stockings, old shoes, and a half worn felt hat. Any person securing said Fellow so the subscriber (living in Frederick County, neat Bainbridge’s old mill, on the road leading from Frederick Town to Hager’s Town) may get him again, shall receive the above reward, and reasonable charges if brought home.
