      Trenton Ferry, in Burlington County, August 5, 1750
      Runaway from the subscriber hereof, a likely young Negroe fellow, about 5 foot 6 inches high, named Lot, took with him when he went away, a flower'd jacket and breeches, and a pair of blue and white striped breeches, an ozenbrigs shirt, and a fine shirt, with ruffles at the bottom, old shoes, no stockings, and some money. He talks very good English. It is supposed he is gone towards Allen-Town, and from thence to Great Egg Harbor, for he formerly lived there with one Higbee, and afterwards with Joseph Sooy. Whoever secures the said fellow, that his master may have him again, shall have Three Pounds reward, and reasonable charges, paid by: Thomas Hooten
      N.B. All masters of vessels, or others, are forbid to carry him off, or entertain him, at their peril.
