Document Description

Ran away from the subscriber, living at the Petit Gulf, Jefferson county, Mi. on the night of the 2d inst., a yellow boy named HENRY, 20 years of age, about 5 feet 10 inchers high, rather reserved in his manners and taciturn; had a scrofulous tumour [sic] upon the right side of his neck, which has nearly and perhaps quite disappeared; took off with him a variety of clothing. He went off in company with three slaves, belonging to C. DART & CO. of this place, viz: a bright mulatto fellow named JOHN, aged 22 or thereabouts, a native of Cuba, speaks the Spanish language fluently, but the English very imperfectly; his wife, named ANN, a wench whose complexion is much darker than either of the boys above mentioned; she is probably 23 or 24 years of age, shrewd and sensible, bold and impudent in her address; also, a negro woman, named BRIDGET, between 30 and 35 years of age, and stout built. The above slaves went down the river from this place: having been intimate, they will probably keep together, and unless sooner arrested, they may possibly proceed to New Orleans. Whosever will return said negros or secure them so that they may be obtained, shall be liberally reward and all expenses paid, on application to C. Dart & co. [sic], Petit Gulf, or to JNO H. SAVAGE The editors of the Louisiana Advertiser will please insert the above three times, and forward their account to this office for payment.
