Had on when he went away a pair of tow trowsers and shirt, yellow nankeen west-coat and fustian colored roundabout jacket and rorum hat. All persons are forewarned harboring or trusting him on my account. Whoever will take up said boy and return him to me, or secure him in the jail of New Brunswick shall receive the above reward and reasonable charges.
