250 Dollars reward!On the night of the 12th of November last, the Store of the subscribers was broken open, and a trunk, belonging to captain Walter Norton of the schooner Michigan, taken out, containing money to a considerable amount. The trunk was afterwards found, when it was ascertained that about TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS were missing. The robbery was committed under such peculiar circumstances, as induced a general belief that neither the robber nor the money could remain long concealed. But as every attempt to discover either has hitherto proved unsuccessful, the above reward will be given for the apprehension of the thief, with the money, on his being secured in any jail so that he can be brought to justice; or,

One Hundred Dollars

for the apprehension and security of the thief, and in proportion of the one hundred and fifty dollars, for whatever monies may be recovered.

Jennings, Darling, & Co.
City of Sandusky, Dec. 18, 1819.
