Two hundred and fifty dollars reward.
--Ran away from the subscriber, on the night of the 21st inst., five negro men, to wit: George, Washington
, Lemuel, and page.
George is about 30 years old, 5 feet 3 or 4 inches high, dark complexion, and of slow speech.
is a brother of George, and about the same complexion, 28 years old, a little quicker than George when spoken to, about 5 feet 8 or 10 inches high, and rather slender make.
is of black complexion, about 22 years old, 6 feet high, big mouth, large teeth and wide apart.
Lemuel is a brother of Barnett
, 5 feet high, black complexion, and has large, heavy eyes.
Page is a ginger broad color, 5 feet 4 inches high, and when spoken to answers quickly and politely.
Page waited on my son twelve months in Capt. Carter
's King William Battery, and, I think, is the pilot to the other slaves, either to get them to the Yankees
or find employment in some Southern company.
I will pay the above reward for the delivery of said negroes to Dickinson
, in the city of Richmond
, or to me, in King William county
, or $50 for either of them.
