Being asked by William Hays if he did not know that Thomas Hays was frequently going away, and when he was gone, if he, William Hays, was after him at the time, that his mother would ask any person she met with, to go after him, and would offer them anything she had to do it, who answered that he believed his mother was never satisfied when he was gone, tho' never so many people were after him, but when she hired him, the deponent, for that
      purpose, she told him she could not get her son William Hays to go after him. Signed - William (W his mark) Carter. Taken before me this Aug 15, 1785 - Jon Dent. Recorded Dec 6, 1787.
