He has a Scar on his Fore head and Neck; rather light complexion, large, well made, and is an artful Fellow; he is a Cooper, Sawyer, and coarse Shoemaker. Had with him a blue homespun Knapsack, an old drab-coloured Great Coat with sundry other Cloaths that I no not remember. He has waited on the Subscriber for Several Years past; but last Year he was hired to Richard Bullock, of Warren County, where he had a Wife, and it is probable he may be in that Neighbourhood.
