--Ran away, about the 1st of July, 1864, from J. A. Seay, to whom he was hired to work on the Danville railroad, my boy John, eighteen or twenty years old, five feet six or eight inches high, bright complexion, spare made, and very likely.
I will pay the above reward for his delivery to me or confinement in jail so I can get him.
