No. 1 negro woman takes up with free negro man.

by Lisa Y. Henderson

$100 Reward

Ranaway from Mr. N. Carpenter, on the Charlotte Rail Road, near Brown Marsh, in November last, my negro Girl BELL.  The said girl is a No. 1 negro, about 5 feet 6 or 8 inches high, very well put up, and with a smooth black skin.

She is supposed to have taken up with a free negro man in the Brown Marsh neighborhood. I will give the above reward for her delivery to me in Fayetteville, or $50 for her confinement in any jail so that I can get her.   James P. Robertson. Jan. 23.
