--Ranaway from my saw mill, in Buckingham county
, on Monday, May 5th, 1862. my negro man, named John.
Said negro is about 22 years old, ginger-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
, 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. Rayne
, or to myself, in Richmond
