Three hundred dollars reward
--Ran away from the subscriber, on the night of the 5th of this month, (November,) near Charlotte
C H, Vs, my three men Pompey, Miles, and George--Pompey is a black, fat, stout, short man, 27 years old, and was my cook.
Miles is a slender and rather dedicate gingerbread-looking man, 38 years old, and if made to hold out his hand is very tremulous, and was my carriage driver.
George is a stout, slouchy walking gingerbread looking fellow, 25 years old, and is a pretty good blacksmith and carpenter.
As these negroes ran off without any provocation whatever, it is presumed their object is to make their way to the Yankees
They were raised at Weston
, on James river
, and no doubt will endeavor to make their escape in that direction.
I will pay a reward of $100 each for the apprehension and imprisonment of these negroes so that I get them again, or will pay $100 each and their expenses if delivered to me at Charlotte
