From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/21/1862, p. 2, c. 6

RANAWAY – From the service of the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company, two NEGRO MEN, viz:

Pry, belonging to Walker Washington, of Caroline county: about 5 feet 6 inches in height, dark complexion, and dull in appearance.

Reuben, belonging to Alexander Hutcheson, of Richmond city; about 5 feet 6 or 8 inches in height, dark complexion, good countenance, and quick in his movements.

It is supposed that these Negroes are employed in some of the camps, cooking for the soldiers.

Ten Dollars reward each will be paid, in addition to what the law allows, if delivered to me or lodged in any jail so that I can get them.

Sup’t . & D. R. R.
