[NC] RUFFIN (owner N.M. Laurence) NC
Ran away from the subscriber on the night of the 15th of April last,
my negro man named RUFFIN. He is of dark yellow complexion,
tall and well proportioned and weighs about 190 lbs. He has a
scar on one of his legs, produced by a burn; also a small scar on
his forehead. he had on when he left a black sack overcoat and cotton
serge pants. I suppose he is lurking about Raleigh Hillsborough, or Chapel Hill
as a free boy.
I will give the above reward for his delivery to me at my residence near
Wilton, Granville Co. NC or $25 if confined in any jail so that I can get him again.
