--For the safe delivery to my office of a Negro Boy, named George, the property of William Skinner
, of Culpeper county, Va.
The said Negro is about 18 or 20 years old, and near 5½ feet high, stout built, yellow complexion, bushy hair; has a lazy look, and speaks slow — George was hired last year in Petersburg
, to a tobacconist; this year he was hired to J. W. At kinson, Esq.

The said Boy was shipped, about three or four weeks ago, on the Central Railroad cars to Culpeper Court-House, to wait on Major Skinner
.--He was put on the cars with the servants that accompanied Col. Kershaw
's or Gregg
Since that time he has not been seen or heard of. He had in his possession a free passport, which was left for him by Major Skinner
