Two hundred dollars reward.

--I will give the above reward for the apprehension and delivery to Dickinson, Hill & Co, in the city of Richmond, or the securing in jail so that I get him again, of my man Dawson, or David Dawson, as he is sometimes called. Dawson is about thirty five years old, six feet high, quite black; his hair somewhat straight and bushy, and has very good teeth. He is believed to be lurking about Richmond, where his wife lives. He may possibly try to make his way to Middlesex county, where I have a farm, and where he was born and raised. My post office is Chuia Depot, Amelia county.
