50 Dollars Reward.
RAN AWAY from the subscriber living in Loudoun County, Virginia, two slaves, one named JOB, a mulatto man, is stout and well made; had on when he went away a pair of new tow trowsers, and shirt of the same kind; the other a negro man named JACK, tall and slim, very black and has a remarkable large mouth, is apt to grin when spoken to; Jack had on an old ragged shirt and new tow trowsers; it is probable they will change their dress. They went away about the 20th of last month, and were persuaded off by a mulatto man named Joe, belonging to Elisha Marks. Any person that will take up said slaves, and secure them so that I may get them again, shall receive the above reward, or Twenty-five Dollars for either, and all reasonable charges paid by
