$100 Reward. Ranaway from the subscriber's farm near Washington, on the 11th of October, negro woman SOPHIA GORDON, about 24 years of age, rather small in size, of copper color, is tolerably good looking, has a low and soft manner of speech. She is believed to be among associates formed in Washington where she has been often hired. I will give the above reward, no matter where taken and secured in jail so that I get her again. November 16th 1858. George W. Young.
