--I offer the above for my man Riley
, if arrested and secured so that I can get him. He left my farm, in the lower part of Henrico
, more than six month ago. He is about 50 years of age; of dark color; has a scar on the back of his neck; teeth very good; stammers badly, and is about 5 feet 10 inches high.--He has been engaged in carrying charcoal to Richmond
for about 25 years. He is a very shrewd negro, and probably is lurking about the camps, near Richmond
, under an assumed name, with a pass, perhaps representing himself to be a freeman.
Also.--$15 reward for my man Washington
, who left me about a week ago. He is a mulatto, nearly 6 feet high, about 40 years old, and a little bald.
He has a wife at Mr. Jno. Gathright
's in this county.
Address me, Richmond, Va.
