[NC] ARCH (Owner R.H. Wray) 1863
Absconded---on the 3 of June last,
a negro boy named ARCH, aged, 19 years,
weights about 180 pounds, dark copper color,
has a down cast look when spoken to. Said he
was hired from Mr. R. S. Boswell, and was raised
near Shady Grove, Caswell County.---
He carried with him about $125 in money, a small gold
watch, and vest chain and gold pen and pencil with silver
case. I will pay $25 for his delivery to me, or for his
confinement, so I can get him.
