San Antonio, TX: Maverick Clarke Litho Co, 1908. Reward poster [31.5 cm x 22 cm] Good only. Four Horizontal folds with overall wear and discoloring. Glue residue at the head of the reverse. "The above reward will be paid by W.A. Stone to any person who will furnish positive information as to the present whereabouts of Mrs. W.A. Stone (Bertha May Stone) who left her home in Uniontown, Pa., on December 2, 198. The supposition is she was accompanied by or now is in the company of Emery Martin also of Uniontown, Pa., whose cut and description is herewith printed. It is thought that Mrs. Stone is mentally unbalanced and her grief stricken husband, W.A. Stone, earnestly desires that his wife be located and tenderly cared for until he be notified. There is no criminal charge pending against Mrs. Stone, but a warrant has been issued for Martin's arrest. The motive of the husband in offering and pledging himself to pay this reward is to quickly locate his missing wife whom he still loves and cherishes and whose little children need their mother's care. It is thought Emery Martin if located can enlighten any person as to the whereabouts of Mrs. Stone. (Inventory #: 3821)
