Fifty Dollars Reward.

Ran AWAY from the subscriber living near Frost Town, Allegany county, Md. on Saturday the 4th inst. a dark Mulatto Negro man named
about thirty years of age, nearly six feet high, tolerably stout frame, though not fleshy. His clothing cannot be described, as he took with him a variety of clothing. One of his middle fingers has been cut off just above the nail, but not recollected from which hand. It is supposed his wife a free woman is with him. She left Cumberland two weeks before Sam, for the purpose, she said, of visiting her mother, who lives near Bedford, Pa. His wife is a small woman, about 30 years of age, much darker than Sam, and very much pock marked.

I will give the above reward if he is taken & secured in any Jail that I get him or will pay any reasonable charges in addition to the reward if placed in the Jail of this county.

May 13, 1833 AND'W BRUCE.
