--On Wednesday, March 15th, 1865, the Yankees
seized and carried off three Negro Boys belonging to me, to wit:
George, nineteen years of age; black, and a full grown man in size.
, sixteen years old; a dark gingerbread color.
, about fourteen years old, and is a shade darker than Monroe
Having learned from a reliable source that a number of negroes made their escape from said Yankees while passing through Caroline
and King William counties
, I write this to request any citizen at whose house said boys may have taken refuge to communicate the fact to me, by inserting an advertisement in one of the Richmond papers, and also by letter, and I will pay all costs.
