--Ran off on Monday, the 11th of January, 1864, my dining room servant, Minor Woodridge. He is 25 years old, full six feet high, bright ginger cake color, with heavy beard; had a light mixed satinet sack coal and pants; had also a brown tweeds frock coat and light soft hat; was raised by Capt John Winn, of Fluvanna county, and was purchased about a year ago of Dr. R. E. Nelson, of Columbia, Fluvanna county; stemmers when spoken to. He look from my house a new velvet carpet, very little based; the ground was oak, with small figures of brown and green. I will give $100 for the delivery of to me at the corner of Clay and 11th sts, and $50 for the carpet, restored uninjured to me at the place.
