Twenty dollars reward.
--Ran away from the subscriber, for no cause whatever, on the 25th October, a negro man named Griffin
, a dark mulatto, 5 feet 4 or 5 inches high, 35 years old, and stammers when spoken to. Having had his left arm broken when young, it is much smaller than his right, which may be discovered from the peculiar position of the hand and fingers.
Said negro was sold by Dickinson
, on the 6th of last month, for Robert Love of N. C. The above reward will be paid if he is delivered to me at Laurel Grove
, two miles from Atlee
's station, and all reasonable expenses paid, or lodged in some jail, so that I get him.
was raised in Norfolk
, and has a mother and wife and children there.
No doubt he will attempt to make his way to them, or to Chapel Hill, Orange county, N. C.
, as he has acquaintances there [no 5--10t*] J. Monroe Carter
