--Ranaway on Friday morning, January 31st 1862 from the subscriber, at Camp
, four miles from Manassas
, my Negro Man, CÆSar — about six feet three inches high, dark, copper color, thick lips and open mouth, a little round-shouldered, and weighs about 195 lbs. Had on when he left a brown Petersham
coat, gray pants, with black stripes on the sides; black slouched hat, with narrow brim; checked cassimere vest, and a pair of new pegged boots, No. 11.
He has been serving me in camp as cook and waiting servant for the last eight months. He may be harbored by free negroes in the neighborhood of Bristol
, or Manassas
, or has made his way to Richmond
, where his mother lives.
I will give the above reward for his delivery to me, or if lodged in any jail so that I can get him.
