He is fifteen or sixteen years old; about five feet seven or eight inches high, and slender; is of a clear brownish black color, his mother being a dark mulatto and his father black; can read pretty well; looks simple when spoken to, and often curls up his forehead when addressed; had on a grey jacket, a brown shirt and pants, and probably a black sack overcoat, and carried with him a black satchel.
