Document Description

20 Dollars Reward. Ran away from the subscriber, at Point Pleasant, on Tuesday, Feb. 26, a Negro man named PETER, aged about 24 or 25 years; about five feet ten or eleven inches high; very black, with a scar in his right hand between his thumb and fore finger. The said Negro has since been seen at Sulsertown, with a pass and my name signed to it, which was forged. The above reward will be paid to any person who will lodge him in jail so that I get him. WM. CURRY.
