Document Description

Sixty Dollars Reward! Ran-A-Way from the subscriber, about the 25th of February last, three Negro fellows of the following description, to wit: CHARLES, a Negro Man, between 40 and 50 years of age, of black complexion, his head somewhat grey—he is a stout well made fellow. ISAAC, about twenty years of age, about six feet high, a likely well formed fellow—and MOSES about eighteen years of age, about five feet eleven inches high, a little stoop in his shoulders, and one of his knees a little larger than the other, occasioned by the cut of a drawing knife. The above reward will be paid to any person apprehending and delivering the said negroes to me, or lodging them in jail, so that I get them again, or twenty dollars for either of them. B. OSMUN. Mount Recovery.
