HEADING TOWARD NATCHEZ

Louisiana, Mississippi

Arkansas Gazette April 30, 1822 (May 14, 1822) $100 Reward RAN AWAY from the subscriber on Monday night, the 18th inst. a Negro Man named ABRAHAM; about thirty-six years of age, five feet ten or eleven inches high, black skin, limps a little in his right foot, and is very talkative; when in low white company, of which he is very fond, he pretends to be a free man. He was formerly owned by Mr. Overacre near Natchez, and was purchased by me of William T. Walker of that place, about three months ago. Abraham may probably attempt to reach Natchez, if he has gone off without persuasion, but should he have been stolen, which I have some reason to suspect is the case, it is likely he will be taken up Red river, or to the neighborhood of Ouachita. The above reward will be paid upon the delivery of the Negro to me at Baton Rogue, and the conviction of the thief, or twenty dollars for such information as will enable me to recover the Negro. JOHN NOLAN Baton Rouge, La. March 19, 1822
