Runaways.
three hundred Dollars reward.

Left my dwelling, in Richmond, Sunday evening, October 12th, my negro man George Yates, about 20 years old, yellow complexion, about 5 feet 8 to 10 inches high, a scar on his neck under his jaw, and has a cock or cross eye.

Also, two Negro men left my farm, about two miles out of town about the same time of day. One man, Morton, aged about 24 or 25 years, black, about 5 feet 10 inches high; no scars recollected; and boy Dick, 18 years of age, about 5 feet 6 or 7 inches high, black, and had on when he left a deep blue jacket, with brass buttons, and black glaze cap.

Morton is recently from Culpeper county, Va., and Dick I bought from Fauquier county, near Warrenton. Va, last January. George was raised by me in Richmond.

I have no doubt but all three are aiming to make their escape to the Yankees by way of Gordonsville and Culpeper. I will give $100 for each of them, delivered to me in Richmond, or secured in jail so I can get them again.
