$20 reward.

--Ranaway from my saw mill, in Buckingham county, on Monday, May 5th, 1862, my negro man, named Jorn. Said negro is about 22 years old, singer-bread color, quite stout, and wide across the shoulders, and about 5 feet 4 or 5 inches high, and usually wears a cap. I bought John in March last, at the auction room of Dickinson & Hill, in Richmond, of Mr. George Turner, of Prince William county, Va., where he has a wife, and may endeavor to get back. The above reward will be paid upon his delivery to my overseer, Mr. Payne, or to myself, in Richmond.

Truman A. Parker. my 9--6t*
