Two hundred Dollars reward.

--Ran away, my man Claiborne, who is probably acting as servant and cook for some one in the army of the Rappahannock. He is a small, compactly-built man, some 5 feet 6 or 7 inches high, handsome figure, not exactly black, has rotten teeth in front, month somewhat prominent, nose small and low near the eyes and full at the end, which gives his face a angering expression, smiles when spoken to, and is a handy body servant and cook. I will give the above reward for his delivery to E. H. Stokes, corner of Franklin street and Locust alley, Richmond, or for his confinement so that I get possession of him. The attention of all soldiers having hired servants is invited to this description.

W. H. Maddux,
Box 208 Richmond, Va. ap 10--9t*
