Twenty-five Dollars reward.
--Absconded from the farm of Mr. Joseph F. Powell
, one or two miles west of this city, about the last of June, without any cause whatever, a likely negro man, named Edmund, about 21 years of age, supposed to be five 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 of the companies near Richmond
as a free boy, or may have left with some that have been sent away — I will pay the above reward of $25, if taken fifty miles, $100 if taken out of the State
, and $10 if found in or near this city, and delivered to said Mr. Powell
, or put in jail so that I can get him again.
