Runaway Slave Ad 1786

Dublin Core

Title

Runaway Slave Ad 1786

Description

Advertisements of runaway slaves of this sort were common before 1833 when the British abolished slavery. The format of the ad is also common, giving a description of runaway, Henry Jones, and threats to anyone who might aid in his concealment. Unlike this ad, many ads also offered a reward for the return of the runaway.
