‘In Any of His Majestygoals’
Man Wanted for an Unspecified Crime

So long as Bradley did not commit a capital offense, his penalty if captured will be sale as a servant or convict laborer. Majestygoals has appeared as one word in many of these transcribed documents, to the point where I am going to look into whether this was an ancient practice to save the printer space.

May 10, 1770

The Pennsylvania Gazette


ABSCONDED from his bail, May 1, 1770, a certain Michael Bradley;

he came from Ireland about 2 or 3 years ago;

he is supposed to be between 30 and 40 year of age, sandy complexion, sell set;

had on, a green jacket, ozenbrigs shirt and frock, leather breeches, old felt hat, cocked up.

Whoever secures the said Michael Bradley, in any of his Majestygoals, or brings him to the subscriber, near Mount Holly, in Burlington county, New Jersey, shall receive the above reward, and reasonable charges, paid by me JOHN HILLIARD.
