Alexandria Gazette 17 December 1859
$250 REWARD. -- Ranaway from the subscribers, at Alexandria, Va., on the night of the 20th of October, a negro man named DAVID MUSY. Said negro is black, about five feet seven inches high, weight about one hundred and fifty pounds, and is twenty-one or two years of age; full suit of hair; a scar or mark on the right cheek; likely, with good teeth. He is doubtless making his way to a free state. We will give the above reward for taking and securing so that we get him again. [nov 5 - eotf]
