full head of wooly hair-—a very cross forbidding
countenance, is very impertinent, and laughs and *
r talks loud. Pat was born in South-Carolina, and
3 speaks bad Finglifli, with the negro dialed. She
. lias on the upper part of her breast, two pretty
large lumps of flelh refembhng Wens, or rather
, with . the appearance of the marks of a burn. She
carried away with her fevcral chargesef cloaths,

illy made, with scarce any calf. He has ha<i bad
teeth, is left handed, and exceedingly awkward—
he has a full head of wooly hair, which he phits
and drefles to the best advantage. His voi<-« is
• small, his l'peech commoly mild and flow, and his ,

about years of age—she can dress hair, clear
starch, has a taste for millinary and mantua-ma
kiug; and as she is very ingenious, ran turn her
