Jonathon R. Cochran Broadside (Anderson, S.C.)   

| Manuscripts Gifts 2006 | Front Page 2006 | Previous Issues | Friends of the Library |

Printed broadside, undated, signed in print "Jno. R. Cochran, Anderson C[ourt] H[ouse], S.C.," is titled "STOP THE THIEF! $50 REWARD!" and advertises the escape of "notorious burglar and horse thief" Bob Thompson, "a mulatto, about 25 years old, 5 feet 6 or 7 inches high, blind in one eye," who "escaped from me on the 6th of Feb., by jumping from the train between Alston and Littleton, S.C."

The handbill further notes that Thompson "is considerably marked by small pox, especially on his nose - has very black hair, resembling that of an Indian, cut short at this time" and reputedly "has broken open several stores, smoke-houses, &c., in this State" and also "committed many unlawful acts in adjoining States."
