Run away

--From the subscriber, in Fluvanna co. Va, on the 29th of May last, man Moses 5 feet high, black, rather slender, but large nose, one eye out, the right I believe, knock kneed and turned somewhat to the side; scar on arm between elbow and shoulder, cut by a knife, coarse voice had on jeans sack coat and mixed uniform pants. He may endeavor to pass as free and gone off with soldiers. I will give $100 if taken out of the State, or $50 in the State; or $15 if taken in Fluvanna, or any adjoining county . In either case to be delivered to me, or placed in jail so that I get him.

Geo. W. Pettit. P O,
Fluvanna, Va. je 11--cod13t*
