September 1828: Len, a Georgia slave, escapes from Charles County, Maryland

Twenty-Five Dollars Reward.
Ran away from the subscriber, living in Charles County, Maryland, on Monday, 15th of September, a negro man named Len, (the property of Samuel Williams, of Georgia) about 45 years of age, five feet seven or eight inches high, thin visage, black, and looks older than what he is represented to be. Len is left handed, speaks quick when spoken to, has some use of tooks; his clothing is such as Negroes generally wear. No particular mark recollected.

I will give Ten Dollars if taken in Charles or Prince George's County, and the above reward if taken any where else, and secured in jail, so that I get him again.

Hez. Brawner.
