DEAR EDITOR : I wish informa-
tion about my mother and two
children. Mother's name is Beckie
Wells, brother's Charlie, sister's
Annie. They lived near Pontotoc,
Miss., and left in 1865. I have
heard from them but once since.
They were then in Memphis. I ask
all preachers and friends to make
inquires for them, for I want to see
them very much. If found address
me. HENRY WELLS,
care Rev. J. M. Nevils, Ripley, Miss.
