From the Richmond Dispatch, 12/12/1862, p. 2, c. 4
TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS REWARD. – Ranaway from my residence on Church Hill, on the 10th of December, a yellow girl, named MARY. – She is a bright mulatto about 18 years old, speaks quick when spoken to. She is quite slender; about five feet two inches in height. I am unable to describe her dress, as she took away all of her clothes. I will give $10 if taken in the city, or $25 if taken beyond, making her way off, and lodged in any jail so that I can get her. She is most probably secreted in the city. She was raised here, and is owned by B. B. Hutcheson.
