Document Description

Twenty Dollars Reward If taken in Louisiana or Mississippi states, and One Hundred Dollars if taken more north, and all reasonable charges paid—Ranaway from my plantation, about the 10th June, a negro man named DICK, calls himself DICK ANDREWS; about 23 years of age, yellow complexion, small black eyes, low forehead, speaks slow, as though reflecting what to say, looks much like a rogue; about five feet five or six inches high, rather stout made, a tanner and courier by trade, was purchased of JAMES ANDREWS at Flemingsburgh, Kentucky, in 1825. It is believed that Dick was taken on board some steam boat found up the river from the Point Rackesee. Any information of said slave, so I get him, will be liberally rewarded. Dick took with him a number of good clothes, such as is common for field negroes to wear; a blanket cappo, ossenburgh shirts and a good hat. C. MORGAN Point Coupee.
