Document Description

$25 Reward. The above reward will be paid for apprehending the runaway slave AGGY. She has not been seen by me since about the 10th of December last; but I have every reason to believe that she is lurking about the city, awaiting my departure from this place, as she has heard I intend leaving. I believe no particular description of this girl is necessary; as she is well known, being the same girl that was owned by Old Mr. GEORGE, from whom I purchased her. M. ROBITAILLE. Natchez.
