From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/15/1862, p. 1, c. 7

TWENTY DOLLARS REWARD. – I will give the above reward for the apprehension of two negro men, WESLEY and ELLYSON. I expect that they have been present in some hospital as nurses. If such is the case, I will pay the reward if they are sent home. The men are grave diggers, and their services are very much needed. I forewarn all persons from harboring the above slaves.
