Document Description

50 Dollars Reward. Will be paid by the undersigned for the recovery of the following negroes who escaped from on board the Steamboat Florence, on the morning of the 17th inst. while lying to on the north side of Red River, four miles above Bayou Rouge in the parish of Avoyelles. PAUL.—Black complexion, aged about fifty, grey beard and grey head, clothes ragged, he has a villanous [sic] look and will probably make to the Sabine, on the other side of which he is said to have a wife belonging to Andrew Miller. BRANDON.—A likely black fellow about six feet high, aged thirty or thirty-five, he was dressed in linen, with a blanket capeau and wore a good fur hat when he absconded. These two slaves were lately recovered from Andrew Miller at the suit of A. Campbell, and may attempt to go back to Cotile where they expect refuge and protection. The above reward will be given for the capture of both, or twenty-five dollars for either, by application to, G. OAKLEY. Alexandria.
