One hundred dollars reward.

--Ran away from my saw mill, in the upper part of Buckingham county, near Tye River Pond, on Saturday last, September 19th, 1863, my negro boy Thompson. Said negro is about 5 feet 11 inches high; 18 years old; very likely and straight; small burn scar on the back of his left hand. and some bad whip marks on his back; he had on when he left a very neat straw hat. I think he has gone in the direction of Danville, Va, where he has relations. I purchased him in Richmond of Samuel D Chambers, who lives in Campbell county, Va. For his apprehension, and put in some safe jail, so that I get him again, I will give $100 reward. I think he has a forged pass. He stammers a little when spoken to, and originally came from North Carolina.
