Ran away

from Camp Winder Hospital, on the 31st day of August, 1863, my servant man Paul. He is about 21 years of age, black, smooth skin, about 5 feet 7 or 8 inches high, thick set, quick spoken, limps slightly, owing to an affection of one of the little toes, commonly known as "cow itch." He was formerly from Jefferson county, where he may aim to go, or to Charlottesville, where he was hired last year. I will give $100 reward if delivered to me at said Hospital, or secured in some jail, so that I get him again.

E Lee Wager, M D,
1st Div'n, Camp Winder Hosp'l. se 11--3t
