May 1836: Archy Shaw escapes from Otho Beall in Prince George's County, Maryland

One Hundred Dollars Reward.
Ran away from the subscriber, living near Upper Marlborough, Prince George's County, Maryland, on Monday, the 2d day of May, a mulatto man who calls himself Archy Shaw.

Archy is 5 feet 5 or 6 inches high, a dark mulatto, rather a copper color, full eyes and red, quite spare made, full head of hair, his teeth not sound.

I will give forty dollars for the apprehension of Archy, if caught in the District of Columbia, one hundred dollars if he is taken in Baltimore or any free State.

Otho B. Beall.
May 6.
