tall and well shaped, of a black complexion. She
has bad teeth, those of h<-r under jaw are much
discoloured and proj»il a good deisl. She h s a
full head of wooly h ,ir—a very cross forbidding
countenance, is very impertinent, and laughs and
tidlis I'■ ud. Pat was boin in Sou'h-Caroliiia, and
speaks bad Eng'.iCi, with the negro dialefi. She,
has on the upper lartof her breast, two pretty
large lumps of flefh refemlling Wens, or rather
with the appearance of the marks of a burn. Si c
carried away with her leveral changed cloaths,
and go-i/ns of white muslin, and of coloured and
figured printed cottons lafhionably made up. Shi

CLARA her daughter—a very flout, robust,

(houldcred— ajpearing t» ba about 14 years of

oval flat face, her under jaw projecting a little,
arid good tteth. She is very artlul and ifnpu
dcr.t, has a great fluency of speech, ufce good lan
guage, and has been taught to read,—She fas the
appearance of ring worcm, on her left cheek and
chin ; the (kin in lpot3 appearing much paler than
the reft of her complexion, which is much lighter
than her mother's— >*r hair is fliort and wooly:
She wore a pink grounded glinted cotton wi:h a
small black figure, with new tore parts.
Also ran away, on Wednesday the Ilth inft.

fcrvant, —he isabi ut 5 feet 7 inches high, rather
small made, is about it years old, of a good
fniooth, IllscV complexion—has a flat nose, with
very large open noltril«. He carried his head

illy made, with scarce ar.y calf. He has ha J bad,
teeth, is left handed, and exefedingly awkward
he has a full head of wooly hair, which he pi .its
and drefles to the Jieft advantage. His voi<-« is
small, his speech commoly mild and flow, and his
manners appear extremely Ample, but he is at
bottom an artful knav, and when spoken to is
very apt to b.* paflionate and impe.rtir.ent. Dck
is a native of South-Carolina, and ipeaks bad
Hnglifli—he seduCed and carried away with him
Amelia, who he called his wife.
Amelia is a very complete, well inftrufled la

very low forehead—her right eye has a great
weakness, owing to the small pox in her infancy—

refs in her ryes—h»r healthis generally delicate—
tb tit at prrfent likely to cr.crciifc Icr family, and is
about 22 years of age—she can drels hair, clear
(larch, has a taste for millinary and rnantua-ma
kir.g; and as /he is very ingenious, ran turn her
h»ud to any thing and may prob.bly offer herfelf
to some milliner or mantua maker as a work
woman. As Amelia has heretofore beea a great
