Document Description

100 Reward. Ranaway from the subscriber on the 17th May, a mulatto slave, by the name of WARREN alias JOHN, 17 or 18 years old, about 4 feet 6 inches high, somewhat corpulent. He speaks English, French and Spanish. It is believed that he was in Clarksville, on Cumberland river, Montgomery county Tenn., and was, when a boy owned by RICHARD PRYOR, who employed him as a race-rider in Lexington, Bowlinggreen [sic], Nashville and other places. He was afterwards sold to LIVINGSTON LEWIS LEAVELL, of Trenton, Christian county Ky. who brought him to New Orleans, about 4 years and a half ago. It is supposed that he went up the river in a Steam Boat, perhaps to Clarksville, near which place his mother is said to be still living. If he is apprehended, all necessary expenses incurred for his safe keeping, and, conveyance to this place, as well as reward of $100, if the apprehension takes place out of the State of Louisiana, and of $50, if within the State of Louisiana, will be paid immediately on the delivery of the slave by the subscriber. RAMON MON.
