Document Description

30 Dollars Reward. Ran-Away from the quarter of the subscriber, a Negro Man named CAESAR, about thirty five or forty years of age, five feet ten or eleven inches high, he talks slow and sensible when sober—has been seen in the neighbourhood of the Homocheto [Homochitto], where he has a negro wench belonging to Captain Greaton (at the ferry) [sic] named Tina, for a wife, and by her I strongly suspect he is harboured, though I have been lately informed of his being seen on the plantation of Mr. John Hampton White. I will give the above reward to any person who apprehends him, and reasonable charges on bringing him to. GEORGE FITZGERALD. Near Natchez.
