Political Barometer – January 28 to February 4, 1806

RUN away from the subscriber on the 31st of
December last, a NEGRO MAN, named
Mink, about 26 years old, six feet high, very
dark complexion, considerably pitted with the
small pox, and blind in his right eye. He wore,
when he went away, a blue coat, swansdown vest,
and velvet pantaloons; he plays on the violin, and
when he went away had one with him. He is
of Dutch origin, and speaks that language con-
siderably better than English. -- Whoever will
return said negro to his master, shall receive the
above reward.
New-Paltz, Ulster co. N.Y. Jan. 15, 1806
