Caption: Fifteen Dollar Reward
Additional Description: The toil of enslaved African Americans ensured the productivity of the Brewer farm. A slave was a very valuable asset. This runaway ad from 1800, for the return of the runaway Willoughby, a bondsman owned by Dr. William Brewer, shows the lengths to which a master would go to recover his property.
