Six hundred dollars Reward

--For the apprehension of three negro men, who absconded on Sunday night last, with the view, doubtless, of effecting their escape to the Yankees, either in the direction of Williamsburg or the White House. Phil is a light black, 23 years old, medium size, genteel appearance, and intelligent John Archer is of same age and description, except that he is a dark mulatto. Anderson is 23 years old, dark mulatto, tall and well formed, and stammers a little in talking. They are all carpenters by trade, neatly dressed, and wear watches.

I desire to contract with a Carpenter to finish some work that these boys had commenced.

W. C. Knight.
Wilton, Henrico co., June 2, 1863. [je 4--4t*]
