Sixty dollars reward.

--Left my pits at Dover, 17 miles from Richmond, on the James River and Kanawha Canal, six negro men--William, John, Manuel, Sam, Harry, and Jacob--William is supposed to be with our army, probably as a cook, having acted in that capacity in some of the camps near Richmond; has his right eye badly burnt, and is 17 or 18 years old. John and Manuel were hired from Mr. Blackwell, a refugee from Fauquier county, who has the balance of his negroes near Columbia or Palmyra, Fluvanna county, where I think these two negroes are lurking. Sam, Harry, and Jacob, I suppose, are in the neighborhood of Mr. Henry Satterwhite's, Hanover county, of whom two of them were hired. I will pay $10 for the delivery of any of these negroes to me at my pits, or to J. F. Cottrell, on the Basin, Richmond, and I think it probable that the owners of these negroes would give a much larger reward than I have offered if placed where they could get them. [se 15--3t*] John W. Cottrell.
