Document Description

$50 Reward. Ranaway from the subscriber on the 25th of July, a negro man named ELLICK, about 35 years of age, five feet ten or eleven inches, yellow complexion, with a large scar on his head, caused by a scald when a child. Had on when he went away an old cotton shirt, and a pair of old corded pantaloons; a blacksmith to trade. I will give the above award if delivered to me on Lake Bolivar, Mississippi, or secured in any Jail so I get him again. MILES FLEETWOOD Lake Bolivar.
