Ranaway from the undersigned, on the evening of the 18th instant, from his residence near Haymarket, Prince William co., Va., a negro man named ROBERT; he is about 5 feet 8 or 9 inches high, and quite black; round face, large mouth, and very thick lips, and has the second finger on his right hand off.  He is about 45 years of age, clothing not known.

I will give the above Reward, if taken out of the State or District of Columbia; and $50 if taken in the State or District.  The said Negro must be delivered or confined in Jail, so I may get him.  It is supposed he has made for the D.C. as he is well acquainted there and formerly had a wife in Alexandria.
