Abstracts of the Washington Reporter, Washington County, PA 1823-1825 (Vol 5) by Bonnie Malmat
Six and a fourth cents reward. The above reward will be paid to any person who will be meddling enough to take up and bring home to me, Lucas LIVERS, an indented apprentice to the gunsmith business. He is between 19 and 20 years of age and was indented to the age of 21. He absconded on Thursday the 1st instant, and took with him his clothing. Six and one-fourth cents, with the addition of an old rusty gunlock will be the reward for returning said Luke to his master, in as good and sound order as when he ran off. The public are hereby cautioned against harboring, feeding or concealing said apprentice, so that he may be prevented from running home again, at the penalties of the law in such case made and provided. /s/ Tower ADAMS. Gunsmith. Washington.
