$300 REWARD – Ranaway from the subscriber on the night of the 22nd Sept., while being conveyed home from Covington jail, where he was lodged as a runaway, having been gone since July.
MOSES, about 23 years old, 5 feet 10 or 12 inches high, nearly black, small eyes, slightly knock-kneed, and inclines forward when walking. He was lately caught by Jacob P. Davis near James Walker’s, in Dyer County, to whom he formerly belonged. Moses said he was harbored for nearly two months by the above Walker. I will give $25 for Moses if taken within the county, $50 if out of the county, and 100 dollars if taken 50 miles out of the State, with necessary expenses. If he be taken in possession of any white man, I will give 300 dollars for his conviction of harboring or stealing Moses.
Randolph, Ten., Sept. 22, 1835
