Captured Slaves Held
Aug 4, 1821
Florida Gazette

There are now in confinement in this City, four Negro men and a Negro woman said to be the property
of Timothy Bernard, a citizen of the United States. Said Negroes were confined on the 17th July 1820,
by the Spanish Authorities, and were by them transferred to the existing authorities on the cession of the
Province.

This is therefore, to give Notice, that the said Negroes will be sold at Public Sale, to pay expenses on
the first Monday in October next, unless the owner or owners, or their legal representatives, shall appear
and claim said Negroes previous to that day.

By order of the Provisional Secretary of the Province of East Florida

William Reynolds
Private Secretary
St. Augustine, July 30, 1821.
