December 17.

Strayed from Camp near Halifax 12 of October last, two horses, viz: One a black horse 14 hands high, well made, paces, trots and gallops well, about 8 years old, lately branded on the off shoulder N. C., has a hanging mane, switch tail, and some saddle spots on the near side of his back. The other is a small flea bitten grey, trots hard, and is remarkably long in the back, and has some old brands not known, both belled when they strayed. Any person that will give information of the said horses to the owner in the camp in the 10th regiment, or my house in Dobbs County, shall be satisfactorily rewarded.
