Nathan & Jordan

FORTY DOLLARS REWARD, two negro men, named JORDAN and NATHAN.
From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/10/1862, p. 2, c. 6

FORTY DOLLARS REWARD. – Ranaway from the farm of Dr. H. C. Worsham, in Dinwiddie county, my two negro men, named JORDAN and NATHAN. Jordan is a very light mulatto, about 20 years of age, 5 feet 8 or 10 inches in height, bushy head, rather sullen countenance and has a scar under his shoulder, the result of a burn. Nathan is somewhat larger, a darker mulatto, say ginger cake color, about 24 years of age, boxed-ankled, slew footed, walks with a shuffling gait, has two old ulcers on his legs and stammers badly in speaking. These boys are supposed to be lurking around Richmond, and it is probable they may be employed in some of the camps or hospitals as free negroes. I will give the above reward for their delivery to me at Howard Hospital, or $20 for the recovery of either one. Address or apply to

Howard Hospital, 25th and 26th sts.,
North of Main.
