TEN POUNDS REWARD.
Early in the month of March last, ELECK a Negro man, of about twenty-two years age, Ran away from the subscriber, living in Prince William County;--He had on, when he went off, a green over jacket and breeches, and a red under jacket--but as there is reason to believe that he had a variety of clothes, it is probable that his dress cannot be described so as to afford any means of detection. He is about six feet high, of a lean habit, and of a very dark Mulatto, complexion. Some years ago he was attached with a rupture under the jaws, very much in its appearance like the King's evil, and notwithstanding the disorder seems entirely to have left him, the remains of former ulcers are, on examination, easily discovered. Whoever will deliver the said slave to the subscriber, or his overseer, shall receive the above Reward.
