Fifty Dollars Rewards

Ran away from the undersigned on Monday night last, a Negro Girl, named Sally about 20 years of age, of light ginger-bread complexion, about four feet s inches high, with a hump on her back, having the appearance of a broken back. Her countenance is good, and she is polite when spoken to. I will give the above reward if the said negro is taken out of the State of Virginia and returned to me or lodged in jail so that I get her again; if taken in the city of Richmond or county of Henrico, and if taken anywhere in the State beyond the limits of the said city or county, I will give $10.

Also, about the 12th of March, a Negro Boy named Junius Tuppins, apprenticed to me by the Hustings Court of the city of Richmond. The boy is about 17 years old, four feet and a half big, stout and well built, ginger-bread complexion and bad countenance. If he is taken in the city of Richmond or county of Henrico, I will give a reward; if taken out of the said city or county and returned to me, I will pay the necessary expenses of his apprehension, in addition to the sum of $5.
