Document Description

Fifty Dollars Reward. Decoyed from the subscriber, on Saturday night the eighth instant, by some person as is suspected going across the country to Tennessee or Kentucky, A Quarteroon (or Mulatto) Boy, [sic] About 15 or 16 years of age, named ANDY, he has a smooth handsome face, and so remarkably light coloured as almost to be mistaken for a white; his hair, which is black, has been cut pretty short—his eyes are blue, and besides his native language he has learned a little French. I bought him of Major CHRISTOPHER STUMP, with whom he had lived some time previous in the state of Tennessee. I will give the above reward to any person who will deliver the said boy to me in this city, or Thirty Dollars for his delivery at the Jail in the town of Washington, in the Mississippi Territory. EVAN JONES. New Orleans.
