Document Description

$25 Reward. Ranaway from the subscribers plantation on Little Bayou Sarah on the 30th of July, a negro man named ROBERT, about five feet ten or eleven inches high, of black complexion with very white eyes and teeth; he is of a very muscular form, has rather a sneaking look, after he is spoken to; had on when he went away a coarse pair of cotton pantaloons and shirt; perhaps carries his right arm in a sling, as he complained of its being injured before he run off. The above reward will be paid, if he is confined in any gaol [sic], so that I get him, and all reasonable expenses if delivered to my plantation. JOHN BAKER. PS. The negro speaks the Indian language well.
