From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/22/1861, p. 2
STRAYED OR STOLEN - From the subscribers, on the night of the 19th inst., a light bay MARE, heavily built, about 16 hands high, with black mane and tail, and a dark bay MARE, lightly built, about 16 hands high, with dark mane and tail. The last mentioned horse has on the top of her head, between her ears, a cutaneous excrescence about one inch long, caused by an abrasure of the skin. The said Horses were purchased in Richmond from Blankenship's stable, about a month ago; and the last mentioned one was raised in Louisa co., whither it is likely that she is making her way. A suitable reward will be paid for the delivery of the said Horses, or either of them, to the subscribers, at the camp of the 2nd Regiment Florida Volunteers, (Reservoir station, Richmond) or for such information as will lead to their speedy recovery.
