Arkansas Gazette October 14, 1823 (October 21, 1823) TEN DOLLARS REWARD BROKE From the Jail of this County on Wednesday night last, a Negro woman named CELIA, committed to the Jail by the Sheriff of Pulaski County under an attachment. She is a large likely woman, inclined to be fat, black complexion, no particular marks remembered. She was lately the property of Walter Webber, (a Cherokee) and will, in all probability, make for the nation. She is supposed to have went away in company with two Negro men belonging to said Webber. Any person returning said Negro woman, shall receive the above reward. ISAAC WATKINS, Jailer Little Rock, Oct. 11, 1823
