$100 reward.

--Ranaway on the 25th 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 suit black hat, drab coat and blue cotton pants. Charles, his brother, is 20 years old; black; has a full head of hair; is 5 to 10 or 11 inches high, weighs about 65 or 170 ins. He also had on a soft black hat, drab coat and blue pants. I purchased them of W. C. Vanmeter, who lives near Moorefield, Virginia I think it likely they will try and get back to that place. They came to Richmond by railroad from Street burg. I will give the above reward for them, or Fifty Dollars for either, delivered to Hector Davis, in Richmond.
