‘A White Looking Fellow’
A Convict Servant Man on the Run


July 2, 1761

The Pennsylvania Gazette

RUN away from the Subscriber, about the 23d of March last, living in Ann Arundel County, Maryland, a Convict Servant Man, named William Smith, about 20 Years of Age, born in Ireland, a white looking Fellow, whitish Eyes, and has a Scar on one of his Arms or Knees:

Took with him, when he went away, a small bay Horse, about 13 Hands high, with a Blaze in his Face, bob Tail, trots and gallops, branded G H, or H G: it likely may change his Name.

Whoever takes up the said Fellow, and brings him to the Subscriber, shall have Ten Pistoles Reward, paid by JOHN DORSEY, Son of John. [1]

Notes

1. This hefty reward either takes into account the return of the horse, or indicates that William Smith is a 14-year convict
