American Weekly Mercury (Philadelphia), October 24, 1734.

Run away the 26 of June last, from Samuel Leonard of Perth Amboy in New Jersey, a thick short Fellow, having but one Eye, he is half Indian half Negro tho’s black as most Negros; he had on when he went away a blue coat; his name is Wan, he plays on the fiddle and speaks good English and this country Indian. Any person bringing this said Fellow to his master shall have three Pounds Reward with Reasonable Charges paid by Samuel Leonard.

The New-York Gazette, May 25, 1730.

Run away from Solomon Bates of Elizabeth-town a Negroe man named Clause, aged about 27 years old, has got with him a Homespun Coat of Linen and Wool, with Brass Buttons, an Ozenbrig vest with Black Buttons and Buttonholes, and and old striped vest, leather breeches, new Homespun Worsted Stockings, black shoes with Buckles, he has a hat and Cap and he can play upon the Fiddle and speaks English and Dutch. Whoever can take up the said Negroe and bring him to his said master, or secure him and give notice, so that his master can have him again, shall have reasonable satisfaction besides all reasonable charges.
