MR. EDITOR―I desire to find
my people. I left my parents in
Mosel, Texas, when quite young,
mother's name is Martha, her
brother's name was Andy Johnson,
my father's name was Chas. Johnson,
his wife is named Miranda.
My mother once belonged to Judge
Adkins. The man that bought me
was named Benj. Robinson. They
took me to Union county, Arkansas.
I left two brothers in Texas.
They lived with a man named B.
Scott. Their names are Matthew
and Frank. My name is Martha
Easte. I live in New Hope. Write
in care of Rev. London Scott, of
the C. M. E. Church, Hempstead
