Document Description

Notice A Runaway slave came to my house on the 3d of July instant and gave himself up.—The said slave is named PRINCE. Aged 35 or 40 years, [illeg.] belonged to WM. H M[illeg.], of Monroe county, Alabama, and to B. B. BREWER, Esqr. late of Alabama, and lately to DAVID TAYLOR, Esq., of Jackson, and I am informed was sold by Mr. Taylor, to Major NORWOOD, near Woodville, Mississippi. The negro says he was sold by Major Norwood to a French gentleman west of the Mississippi river. The owner can have said slave on application to me, one mile south of St. Stephens, provided he does not abscond in the mean time [sic]. (which in all probability he will not do) [sic] on paying charges. THOMAS COWANDS, St. Stephens, Alabama.
