Runaway, Bob & Matthew Price, from B. Todd, Anne Arundel Co., 1792
Thirty Dollars Reward
RAN away from the subscriber, in Anne Arundel county, near Ellicott’s Mills, BOB, a country born, young negro man, about twenty years of age, rather yellowish, about five feet 8 or 9 inches high, slender made, stoops in his walk, much given to blush, and is very compliant, he was bred a waiter to Major Yates; had on a blue half worn coat, striped jacket, buckskin breeches, white stockings, half boots, ruffled shirt, and a high crowned hat.
MATTHEW PRICE, an Irish lad, born in Cork, about five feet six inches high, short brown hair, a sulky down looking fellow, speaks short, and generally shuts one eye when talking or spoken to; had on a felt hat, bound round the rim, brown jacket, shirt and trousers, and I imagine he has his indenture.
Whoever takes up the said servants, and brings them to me, if ten miles from home, shall have Six Dollars for each, and if out of the state, the above reward, paid by
Sept. 26, 1792.
