From a copy of the Kentish Gazette, mid May 1815
STRAYED away from Brompton on Wednesday Morning the 3rd Instant
A YOUNG MAN
About 23 years of Age. Short and slender made, small and fair face, rather pitted with smallpox. Had on when he left home, a black coat, light waistcoat, blue knit pantaloons and boots.
Being insane and much troubled with fits, he is unable to give satisfactory account of himself, but will to most questions answer William Mattocks nineteen and twenty.
Whoever will have the goodness to give information of the said Young Man to his Mother MARY MATTOCKS, near the White Swan, Wood Street, Brompton, shall have the best thanks of a poor Widow.
Brompton, Kent, May 13 1815
