 Another racer gone to the Poney (sic) Club Carroll County, Georgia, or to some other place of similar distinction.  On Tuesday or Wednesday last was taken without my leave, a small dark chesnut (sic) sorrel Mare, blazed face, all feet white, her fore legs white nearly to the knees, bare-footed all round, and rather wild when handled by a stranger particularly and mane very short, owing to her having the Lampers.

 There is some reason to suspect a lurking kind of white man, who left this place about that time on his way to Marion Co.Ten. or Jackson Co. Alabama.  Friends to the suppression of such villainy, are earnestly requested in all the adjacent states, to keep a sharp look out.  I will give ten dollars for the delivery of the thief & mare to me at this place, or five for the mare alone if caught in the Nation.
