Ten Dollars Reward.
RUN AWAY on the night of the 24th in-
stant, from the subscriber, living at Peek-
skill in Westchester county, a NEGRO MAN
named Lew, 24 years old, about five feet nine
inches high—had on when he went away, a
check linen shirt, brown trousers, and short
lightish coloured coat, an old brown woolen jack-
ket, and wool hat, lopped, bare-footed. It is
supposed he took with him a Mare and Colt—
the mare is black, with four white feet, bald
face; and the colt has three white feet. Any
person securing said negro, mare and colt, shall
receive ten dollars, reward, and reasonable char-
ges—or for the negro alone six dollars, and the
mare and colt, four dollars.
June 26th, 1789. JOHN DRAKE.
