$20 Reward – Ranaway from the subscriber, four miles north of the Hatchey [Hatchie River] turnpike bridge, on the night of the 13th inst., a negro man by the name of ABRAM, a tall likely fellow. His head is rather small than otherwise, in proportion to his body; nose large and flat, with wide nostrils; has downcast looks when spoken to, and a hesitating speech, especially when questioned close.
When he left he had on either a blue Jeans coat or a dark roundabout, and either dark or white linen pantaloons. He took with him a bundle of clothes containing shirts and pantaloons; also a black broadcloth coat. I will give the above reward if delivered or secured so I get him safe. If taken out of the State I will give twenty-five dollars, and all necessary expenses paid.
