Five Hundred dollars reward for the return of Catherine, if found out of the city, or two hundred dollars if found in the city. Said woman is about twenty-three years of age, tolerably stout, and a little cross-eyed in one of her eyes, and formerly belonged to Mr. Helstern, of this city, and hired to a Mr. Goldsmit, on Broad street, before I owned her. She was loaned to a family on Maddox Hill, and during my absence she left there, and went to Messrs. Lee & Bowman's yard (to stay until I returned home) for alleged cruel treatment. She was taken away from said yard, by the said family, without my permission, and caused to be whipped at another yard, which caused her to run off. Upon delivering said woman to me, or M. W. Yarrington, in my absence, the above reward will be paid.
