Twenty-Five Dollars Reward. Ranaway from the plantation of STEPHEN GERARD, on the River aux Boeuff, La. on the 1st of June last, a negro man named TOM or TOM SAUNDERS, aged about thirty-five years, about 5 feet 10 or 11 inches high, stout built, very black, with a heavy beard, had on when he went off a drab roundabout and pantaloons, with a black or brown cloth vest, and cotton shirt. This negro was purchased by Judge BRY, of AUSTIN WOOLFOLK, last December, in Natchez, where he may possibly be lurking to effect his passage, (if he has not done it already,) [sic] up the river. The above reward will be paid for his apprehension and lodged in jail, so that he may be got again, or on delivery to R. & C. King, Harrissonburg [sic], La. or Stephen Miller on the plantation aforesaid, or to the undersigned. ELI MONTGOMERY.
