Document Description

Ranaway From the subscriber on the 20th of April a negro woman by the name of HENNY, of the following description. She is about 40 years old, a yellow mulatto, and I think the most of her teeth is out; she has straight hair for a negro, and it is quite black; her face is tolerably wrinkled, and voice coarse for a woman, though she changes from coarse to fine. I think she may be in Natchez, and perhaps may try to pass as free, or she may try to get on board of some steam boat. I do forwarn all persons and masters or owners of steamboats from harboring her, under the penalties prescribed by law. H. HAMBERLIN. Greenville.
