Three Hundred Dollars reward

--I will give the above reward for the arrest and delivery to the undersigned, living in Richmond, of three young Negro Men, named Edward, Griffin and Murry Fox, aged twenty-five, twenty-two and twenty. Edward is of a gingerbread color; of middle size, with a Roman nose; his step is quick; stammers a little, and dresses well, with a good address. Griffin is about the same height; nose slender, with a protrusion of the under jaw, and is also quick in his motions, and of an obliging disposition. Murry is rather darker and taller; inclines to stoop a little in the shoulders; has long eye-lashes. They left, it is supposed, on Tuesday night, the twenty-seventh instant. They are brothers; and Edward (the eldest) was brought to his mistress on the evening of the twenty-ninth instant, at the Exchange Hotel, when he broke from his custodian and made his escape, and will probably take the route he first took to Charles City county. He was arrested near the Yankee lines in said county.
