Escape toward Chickasaw Nation


Arkansas Gazette April 5, 1836 (April 12, 1836) $50 REWARD RAN AWAY from the subscriber, on the 5th inst., a Negro man named MITCH, aged about 40 years, of yellow complexion, about six feet high, stout and robust in his appearance. Said Negro was purchased by me, a short time since, of Peter Fletcher, Esq., of Crittenden county, A.T.; and I think is likely to be lurking about there, unless he may have attempted to reach the Chickasaw Nation, where he is acquainted. He performs well on the violin, and carried off with him a rifle-gun and hunting apparatus. I will give the above reward for his apprehension and delivery to me in Memphis, or his confinement in any jail, so that I recover him again. LAWSON H. BEDORD Memphis, March 24, 1835 The Little Rock (A.T) Gazette, and Helena paper, will five the above three insertions, and forward their accounts to this office for collection. Memphis Gaz.
