Ranaway.--$20 to $50 reward.
--Ranaway, on 1st of Feb'y, my man George; 22 years old; black; round features; weighs about 160 pounds; 5 feet 8 or 10 inches high; erect; a hoarse, quick manner of speech, and may be called good looking.
Having been raised by the late Wiley Dickinson
, near Barboursville
, he has been and will lurk in that region, or may have fallen in with our army in some manner — most likely as a cook — and now on the Peninsula
, or gone towards the enemy.
If found in the army, or beyond Culpeper C. H., and delivered in fail not farther than Richmond
, so that I get him again, I will give $50; otherwise, I will give the first sum.
