From their master, Capt. Joseph Rous, of Cornwallis Island, Richard Brown, a short well-set fellow, about thirty years old, by trade a butcher, with a blue waistcoat and cloth trawsers; Also a lad named Richard Harrod, about sixteen years of age, who is pretty well known in Halifax. Whoever shall apprehend both or either of them, or give information to the printer where they may be found, shall be suitably rewarded for their trouble; and all Masters of Vessels are cautioned against concealing or carrying them out of the Place, as they would avoid the penalty in such cases provided.
