Forty-five Dollars Reward. RUN AWAY, some Days ago, from the Subscribers, living in Person County, TWO NEGRO MEN, one named Sion, the other Abraham. Sion is a yellow Fellow, about five Feet ten Inches high, has both his ears cropped, and has a smiling Countenance. Abraham is a small balck fellow, about four Feet seven or eight Inches high : he has uncommonly small Eyes, and is not very sensible. These Negroes took with them a bright bay Horse, nearly five Feet high, five Years old this Spring; has a small Blate in his Face, neither docked nor branded, one or both of his hind Feet white. Sion having been raised in Nash County, it is supposed they would make for that County.
