RAN AWAY from my service, on Tuesday night the 18th instant, A Mulatto Negress named BELL. I do hereby promise a reward of FOUR DOLLARS to any person who will apprehend said Negress and bring her tome, or lodge herin his Majesty's gaol in Quebec. She wore when she went away a striped woollen jacket and petticoat, and had no shoes or stockings on. I do cau­ tion all persons from harbouring said Negress, as I am detennined to punish any person in whose custody she may be found to the utmost rigour of the law.

QUEBEC, August 19, 1778.
