$300 reward.

--Ran away, on yesterday morning, about 11 o'clock, from my residence, on Church Hill, my negro boy, named Jordan Christian, about 19 or 20 years old. He is a jet black, about 5 feet 4 or 5 inches high, and quite intelligent. He took with him a bundle of clothes, and was dressed quite decently when he left. He has a father living in New Kent, with a Mr. Duval, and he may be lurking in that neighborhood, or is attempting to get to the enemy. For his arrest and confinement, so that I may get him. I will pay a reward of $300.

Jas. H. Coghill. mh 15--6t
