$100 REWARD.
RANAWAY from World Furnace, Dickson County, on the 3d instant, two likely light colored Mulatto Boys, TOM, an engineer, about 21 years old, well formed, middle size and intelligent. JIM, a Blacksmith, about 18 years old, one leg shorter than the other, perceivable when he walks. It is supposed that two low white women left the neighborhood about the same time, and that the boys may be in Company with them. I will pay the above reward to any person who will deliver the boys to James L. Bell, at the Patterson Iron Works, Davidson County, Tennessee.
MONTGOMERY BELL.
August 6, 1845.—3t W&U
