Document Description

Fifteen Dollars Reward. Ranaway from the undersigned, about the 1st of August last, a negro man named JOHN, nearly sixty years of age, yellow complexion, five feet eleven inches high; clothed with a red flannel shirt and cotton pantaloons—he is supposed to be in Jefferson county, somewhere in the neighborhood of Selsertown, and no doubt will attempt to pass as a free man. The said negro John was purchased by me from mr. SAMUEL BURKE, and is well known in the city of Natchez. Whoever will apprehend and deliver to me the above described slave, shall receive the specified reward. SIMON MONK. Natchez,.
