MR. EDITOR―I wish to know the whereabouts of my mother whom I have not seen since the Christmas of 1884. She left West Columbia, Texas, on the Brazos river and went to Houston, Texas, to meet her daughter, Emily Watson, and never heard of since. Her name is Manervia Watson. Her eldest son is named John Carter, the youngest daughter is Hester Homes. My name is Alcy Boon. Any information of her please address me at Caney, Texas, care Rev. A. Brown, pastor in charge.
MR. EDITOR―I have found my mother through the dear SOUTH WESTERN. God bless you and your paper; it resurrects the forgotten, the lost can be found. I love it better than ever.

ALCY BOONE.

Caney, Teyas.
