EIGHT DOLLARS REWARD.

RANAWAY from Subscriber, living in Stafford County,
Virginia, on Thursday, 30th ultimo, a NEGRO MAN Named
DANIEL, About Forty-five years of age, five feet eight or
nine inches high, spare made of a dark complexion, has lost
some of his fore teeth, and stutters a little when spoken
to.  Had on when he went away, a White half-thick coat, Drab
cloth jacket, Oznaburg Breeches, a pair of shoes half-worn,
and an old Felt Hat; but as he has other cloathes, he may
change his dress.  He had a half-worn double mill'd Drab,
loose Great-Coat, with large plated, carved buttons, also, a
Drab Sagathee Coat, almost new, white Jean jacket and
Breeches.  It is more than probable he may have obtained a
pass, and endeavour to pass as a freeman.  I will give the
above REWARD if any person will secure him in any Goal so
that I get him again, and all reasonable charges paid if
brought home.

JAMES MURRAY, Jun.
Stafford County, July 6, 1796

N.B.  All persons are forwarn'd from harbouring or employing
said Negro.  J.M.
