John Rose Offers Reward

The following is interesting because of the size of the reward that was offered.  John Rose must have been a very frugal man.
The Corrector (Sag Harbor), August 29, 1846, p. 3.
1 CENT REWARD---Run away from subscriber, on the 14th inst, an indentured boy, aged 15, by the name of Augustus Stevens.  Whoever will return said boy shall receive the above reward, and all persons are hereby forbid harboring or trusting said boy,
                                      JOHN S. ROSE.
     Fireplace, Brookhaven, Aug. 18th, 1846
