One hundred Dollars Reward for the apprehension and delivery of my man Amos Harris, who ran away on the 4th instant from my residence, on the Mechanicsville turnpike, near the toll-gate. He is about six feet high, a little stooped in the shoulders, and about sixty years old; grey head and beard. He formerly belonged to William Copland, Esq., who lived near the Yellow Tavern, in Henrico county, and on the Mechanicsville turnpike. He is probably lurking in the neighborhood of the Yellow Tavern or about Richmond. I will pay the above reward for his delivery to me.
