BATON ROUGE MASTER SEEKING BONDSMAN PETER

Louisiana

Arkansas Gazette April 30, 1822 (May 14, 1822) $100 Reward RAN AWAY on Monday night, the 13th instant, a Mulatto Man named PETER, about twenty-five years of age, five feet six or seven inches high, of a surly countenance and heavy eye-brows, a shoe-maker by trade. He was formerly the property of Pape Salvador, and was purchased by me of James Johnson, at Alexandria, Red river. Should Peter have been stolen, which I have some reason to suspect is the case, I will give the above reward of one hundred dollars for the apprehension and delivery of the boy to me at Baton Rouge, and the conviction of the thief, or twenty dollars for such information as will lead to the recovery of said slave. CHARLES HUBBS Baton Rouge, La. March 19, 1822
