--Ranaway on the 26th of August, two Negro Men, named John and Charles.
John is 24 years old; black, has a full head of hair, is 6 feet 1 inch high; will weigh about 200 pounds; had on when he left a soft black hat, drab coat and blue cotton pants.
Charles, his brother, is 20 years old; black; has a full head of hair; is 5 feet 10 or 11 inches high; weighs about 165 or 170 lbs. He also had on a soft black hat, drag coat and blue pants.
I purchased them of W. C. Vanmeter
, who lives near Moorefield
I think it likely they will try and get back to that place.
They came to Richmond
by retread from Strasburg
I will give the above reward for them, or Fifty Dollars for either, delivered to Hector Davis
, in Richmond
