Document Description

100 Dollars Reward. Ranaway from the subscriber, on the night of 26th August last, a negro man named BILL, 22 years of age; supposed to be about 5 feet 8 or 9 inches high, light complexion, rather inclined to yellow; large feet and legs, slim around the middle. I think he has a small scar on one cheek, just below the eye. He was lurking around my plantation for near a week after, and got a young negro girl [GIRL] between 14 and 15 to go off with him. She is quite black, common size for her age, slim hands and fingers, is left-handed, she uses her needle with her left hand when sewing also in picking cotton. I have no doubt some white person has either concealed them or taken them off. I will give fifty dollars for the detection of the scoundrel, and fifty dollars more if prosecuted to conviction; or ten dollars to any person delivering them to me, or lodging them in jail so that I can get them. I will give a suitable reward to either of the Jailors in this state, should either or both of the above described negroes be lodged in their jails, by informing me of the same, directed to me at Pleasant Hill Post Office, Jefferson county, Mississippi. GEORGE ANDREWS.
