EAF BOUGHT FROM NE-TA-KI-JAH ESCAPES

OKLAHOMA

Arkansas Gazette March 6, 1833 (March 27 1833) 25 Dollars Reward RAN AWAY from Ne-ta-ki-jah, a Choctaw Chief, residing in the Choctaw Nation on Red river, about the last of January, a Negro Man named EAF or EPHRAIM, who formerly belonged to Mr. Stephen Harris, of Conway county, and more recently to Dr. M. Cunningham, at Little Rock, who sold him last winter to Ne-ta-ki-jah, from whom the subscriber bought him. Said Negro is about five feet six or seven inches high, well made, countenance rather pleasant than otherwise, between 25 and 30 years of age, very talkative, fond of drinking and gambling, has a strong propensity to be roguish, and is a pretty shrewd fellow. He has been seen prowling about Little Rock since he ran away, and, I understand, was subsequently apprehended near the Saline, in Pulaski county, but broke custody, and made his escape. I will pay the above reward to any person who will apprehend said Negro, and secure him in jail, so that I get him again, and all reasonable charges in addition, if delivered to me at Doaksville, near Fort Towson. JOSIAH DOAK DOAKSIVLLE, Feb. 7, 1833
