Ran away from the subscriber a negro man, named Lewis, of dark complexion, and nearly six feet tall; quite intelligent, and his pronunciation a little singular; his hands were badly frost- bitten when he left. His wife, whom he expressed great desire for me to purchase, is owned by Mr. James A. Johnson, of Caroline county, of whom I bought the said negro man, Lewis, some months ago; suppose he is now lurking in the neighborhood of his wife. Any information of him will be thankfully received, and a reward of five hundred dollars will be paid for his delivery to me, or his lodgment in jail, that I may get him again. My address is Goochland Courthouse.
