The woman Harriet was seen about Rocketts in the month of June.
Washington has been run away six months, and most of the time in the army about Richmond.
He is about nineteen years old; rather low in stature, of stout, strong form; very black; stutters quite badly, and in speaking is constantly kicking out one foot or the other in a restless manner.
His under lip hangs considerably.
He probably pretends to be free.
Harriett is the mother of Washington, and is about forty years old. She was hired in the West Point Hospital at the time that place fell into the hands of the Yankees, but probably made her escape to Richmond with our soldiers.
She is low in stature, stout in form, and rather tawney in complexion, with a full head of hair, and had one or two infants with her. I will pay $50 for the apprehension of the boy and $25 for the woman.
Should the boy be found about Petersburg, he may be lodged in jail there.
Petersburg, Sept. 23.
