Document Description

Notice. A Runaway Negro woman came and surrendered herself to Mrs. Elizabeth Jones, and in consequence of the prevailing malady, the Cholera, the subscriber deems it prudent to give this notice to the owner and not put her in jail. She calls her name MARY, and says she was brought by THOMAS WILLCOX from Tennessee, to this settlement, when she left him on his way to Louisiana. She is about five feet five inches high, stout and rather of a chesnut [sic] black, perhaps thirty years old, has three or four raised scars near her ear on the cheek. The owner can get by paying charges, proving property and applying to the subscriber near Warrenton Mississippi. JOSEPH E. PRICE Warrenton.
