Runaway. [heading]
Since the Month of July last, a Negro Woman the property of Miss Mary Clozier, who formerly resided on Plantation Bath, Little Corabana, The said Woman is named Phoebe, rather elderly tall, thin, pock'd marked, and speaks the French language fluently. When she absconded she was very near her time of laying in, it is therefore most probable she has a sucking Infant with her. From her having resided years on Plantn. Bath, and had a Husband on said Estate, it is most probable she is secreting herself in the neighbourhood of Mahaica or Mahaicony.
A Reward of Three Joes will be given for her apprehension by
Feb. 24, 1810. Jno. Ashley.

Whereas I have this day passed a special and General Power of Attorney on the Honble. Anthony Meertens, (at present residing in England), and during his absence on D. N. A.

All Persons to whom I am indebted will please send in the amount and particulars of their claims as early as possible.

William Chorley. [heading]
Begs leave to inform all those Persons who are indebted to him individually, since the year 1808 and previous, that he cannot give any longer indulgence; and will be under the necessity of placing those Accounts, Obligations, &c. in the hands of his Lawyer to collect, if not settled before the first of April next. Feby. 24, 1810.

All Persons having any Demands against the late Miss Eve Ann Jordan are requested to deliver the same to
Jno. Ashley,
Charles Edmonston, Executors.
Demerary, 24th February 1810.

The Undersigned returns his grateful thanks to the different Gentlemen who have been kind enough to favour him with their Work, and humbly apologizes to those who have been disappointed lately, and promises to be more punctual for the future, by not undertaking more than he can conveniently go through himself, as he finds it's quite out of his power as yet to procure a Person who will exert himself so as to enable the undersigned to undertake any great quantity of Work, which obliges him to carry on the Carpenter's, Joiner's and Cabinet Maker's business on his own account, and any Jobs that he undertakes he flatters himself that it will meet the approbation of those Gentlemen who may condescend to favour him. Not being very expert at the Glazier's business he would not attempt to offer it to the Public in a general way, but if any Person wishes to employ him in that business he will strive to please, but first refer them to some lately done by him in this Town.
Thomas Campbell.
North Street, Bridge Town, 24th February 1810.
