Ranaway or stolen from the subscriber on the night of the 16th, Sept., a negro woman named HANNAH. About 40 years old, 5 feet 3 or 4 inches high, thick built, speaks low and but little, black complected, has a sulky appearance, bushy hair, and wore a blue domestic frock but had other clothes. Hannah left me with six other negroes, four of whom have since been taken in Arkansas on their way to a free State, and the other two were drowned. She is most probably in Arkansas making her way up the river.
The negro LOWEL, who has been taken, says that they were under the guidance of Anson Moody, who enticed them away, and who lately received 100 lashes and a brand on the right cheek with the letter R, in Brownsville, this state, for stealing a negro; said Moody is about 30 years old, 6 feet high, of pleasant appearance and address and was lately stabbed in his right arm near the shoulder. I will give 250 dollars for the negro and Moody, or $200 for Moody. All necessary expenses paid.
