Document Description

Lost or stolen, a black girl by name of SALLY about ten years of age—pretty well grown for her years—lively and active. Sally is well known in the city having been an attendant on her Mistress at the store on Commercial Row. Whoever will restore or cause to be restored to me said Girl, if she be lost, I will give a handsome reward and pay all reasonable expenses—if stolen, and restored so that I may bring the thief to justice, I will give One Hundred Dollars. I believe she has been stolen. RICHARD TERRELL.
