One thousand dollars reward.

--Ran away, my man named John; calls himself John Muse; thirty years of age; black complexion; high forehead, with a small knot on it resembling a wen; very likely; quick spoken; a carpenter by trade; he is five feet eight or nine inches high. I will give the above reward for his delivery to R. Lumpkin's jail, Richmond, or any other jail so that I can get him. His father lives in King and Queen county, and no doubt he is making his way there.
