Document Description

$300 Reward. Was stolen, by some persons unknown, from the subscriber in Clinton, Miss., about the 1st October, a negro woman named MARIA. She is about 35 years old; complexion, a dark mulatto—perhaps one-fourth white, dresses neatly; intelligent and reads well; has a large head of hair, marks of the small pox in her face, and a large scar around one of her arms near the elbow, and is a first rate seamstress. One hundred dollars reward will be given for her apprehension and confinement, so that I can get her, and two hundred dollars for the thief it brought to justice. Any information respecting the above slave, addressed to Messrs. Martin & Akin, Vicksburg, or the subscriber in Clinton, will be gratefully acknowledged. SAMUEL BROWN. (Adv. & Register) [sic].
