DEAR EDITOR:-- I am inquiring for my people. I left them in Lee county, Mississippi, when I was 13 years old. My mother was Hannah, my brothers were Jerry, Squires, George and Peter. They belonged to Aaron Whiteington. I was sold to Sam Williams, and brought here by my owner. I am near 53 years old. My name is Millie Martin. Address in care of Rev. H. J. Wright, Pastor Asbury M.E. Church, Natchitoches, La.
