25 Dollars Reward. Ran away from my plantation on Wednesday last, a negro fellow named LONDON; about 21 years of age; he is nearly six feet high, very straight, active and likely; his face smooth and without beard, has rather a down cast timid look. Had on when he went away, a dark coloured callico frock, and coarse linen overalls, but has with him also, some fine clothing. One other negro [MAN] who was out with him was caught yesterday, and from him I learn that some white person (yet unknown to me) [sic] has [torn] purpose he is to furnish him with a proper pass and whatever else may be necessary. This is but a negroe’s story, yet there is too much reason to believe it to be true. It is hoped that every good man will exert himself to detect and suppress such detestable villainy. I will give the above reward, besides all necessary charges, to any person who will apprehend said negro, and secure him to that I get him. SETH LEWIS.
