--Absconded from the farm of Mr. Joseph F. Powell
, one or two miles west of Richmond
, between two and three weeks ago, without any cause whatever, a likely Negro man, named Edmund, about 21 years of age; supposed to be near six feet high, genteel figure, quite intelligent; has a full suit of hair, large full eyes, big mouth, thick lips, good-looking teeth; speaks quick, but sometimes affects an impediment in speaking; no particular mark remembered.
He is supposed to have hired himself to some one of the companies near Richmond
, as a free boy, of may have left with some that have been sent away.
The above reward of $25, if taken within fifty miles, $100 if taken out of the State
, and $10 it found in or near the city; and delivered to said Mr. Powell
, or put in jail, so that I got him, will be paid.
