--For the delivery to me of my Carriage Driver, Beverly
He is twenty-seven years old; color, black; six feet high; face covered with short beard, and moustache; large eye brows and curling eye-lashes.
He probably travels in a dark grey mixed summer coat, or blue cloth with brass buttons, and carpet-bag
He says he has read Shakespeare
, and may travel with a forged pass, and shave off his beard when he reads this He has relatives at Dr R. H Stewart
's, in King George, and at Mrs. Dr. Frank Taliaferro
's, in Orange
, with whom he has been recently corresponding by letter.
His object being evidently to escape, he is doubtless lurking about the shore of the Potomac
, or making his way Northward, and may be about our encampments.
The above reward will be paid if caught over fifty miles from Fredericksburg
; otherwise, &50.
