$ 450 Reward! Horse—Thieves!

LEFT my house in Hagerstown early this morning September the 25th, with my horse and buggy, on the road to Chambersburg, a fat yellow WOMAN, aged about 40 years, and her yellow CHILD, aged about 10, stout and well formed.— Also, negro boy JACK, aged about 17, and negro boy CHARLES, aged 15, of a more yellowish complexion than Jack. Those boys wore a greyish colored coat each when they left Charles had on a light made boot. Their clothing may be changed. $150 will be paid for the apprehension of either of the boys, and for the woman DAPHNEY and her female child LOUISA, if committed in jail so that I may recover them wherever taken.

Any information directed to William Freaner, Hagerstown, Md., will be promptly attended to.
Oct. 11, ’54.       

N. B.—The above negroes were all house servants and accustomed as waiters.
