Ran away

RAN AWAY FROM the Subscriber, some Time in June last, a Negro Man by the Name of Elmesly, commonly called Doctor Elmesly a thick, well set Fellow, of a yellow Cast, and squints a little; about 5 Feet 6 or 8 Inches high. I purchased him of a certain W. Edwards, of Greene County, and understand he was raised in the Neighbourhood of Raleigh, where I expect him to be lurking. I will give a Reward of Twenty-five Dollars to any Person who will take him up and deliver him to the Jailor of Newbern A. KORNEGAY, Sen. Newbern, Nov. 12, 1802.
