my negro man SIMON, who is said to be about 40 vears
of age, light complexion; tolerably tall and raw-boned,
with a scar on his breast and one on his face (perhaps
the left side) near the coinerof his month, speaks in
rather a long tone of voice, and most of his front teeth
are missing, has large feet, stoops a little forward when
walking, and moves rather slowly. I expect he will
endeavor to make his way back to Alamance County,
where he says he formerly lived, and belonged to a Mr.
Dickey, who I think he says owns his wife. I purchased
him in April last from Messrs. Arch'd. S. McKay and

Boy, by the name of LEWIS. He is about twenty
years old, has a small scar on his right cheek, has straight
hair, when spoken to has a down look, is about five feet
ten inches high. The only clothing recollected that he
took away with him was a checked coat.
I have understood ho has been seen some Where on
the Central Rail Road, and think it probable he passes
for a free man, and has by some means procured free
papers. I will give the above reward of twenty-five dol
