AUSTIN ESCAPES TOWARD CHEROKEES

OKLAHOMA

Arkansas Gazette April 7, 1821 20 Dollars Reward RAN away from the subscriber, on the night of the 1st inst. on the river, about six miles below the town of Arkansas, my NEGRO MAN, AUSTIN. He is about 35 years of age, five feet 8 or 9 inches high, slender make; he lived a considerable time in the old Cherokee nation, and was owned there by the Rogers', and sold by them to Maj. McElmurry, near Cadron. He is a keen, sensible fellow, and will no doubt endeavor to make his escape to the Cherokees, either in Tennessee or on the Arkansas river. The above reward will be given for his delivery to me, at New-Orleans, or to JOHNSTON & ARMSTRONG, Post of Arkansas. WM. WATSON Arkansas, April 7, 1821
