Document Description

Runaway In Jail. Was committed to the Jail of Adams county, Mississippi, a Negro Girl who calls herself PEGGY, and says she belongs to Mrs. ADELAID COCHRAN, a milliner of New Orleans: said negro is quite dark, and her person delicate and small—she is about 19 years of age, and had when committed, a variety of clothing, consisting of calico, striped cotton and muslin dresses, together with one plaid silk dress, and many other articles of clothing too tedious to enumerate. The owner of the above described negro is requested to comply with the law and take her out of Jail. W. W. CALMES, Jailor.
