500 dollars reward.

--Ran away from me, at Petersburg, on the 25th June, 1864, my man William. He is about 5 feet 7 or 8 inches high, yellow copper color, rather sharp features, straight built, weighs about 140 pounds and about 20 years old. Said boy was raised in Richmond, and formerly belonged to Colonel Poladerter. He was sold to Thomas A Pol, of Montgomery. Alabama, last winter. He is supposed to be about the city or passing in the army as a free boy. I will pay the above reward for his apprehension and delivery or confinement in prison.

Colonel W. C. Oates,
Law's brigade. au 5--6t
