DEAR DEAR:--I want information as to my people whom I left in Virginia some years ago.My owner was Robert G. Hudgans; I left him at Greensboro, White Sulphur Springs. My mother was Lucinda Johnson, and lived at the same place. My father was named John Washington and lived in Essex county, Va. Sisters were Louisa and Bettie, and brothers Ed Johnson and Jerry Johnson. My young masters were Walter, Westcomb and Bob Hudgans, and Sally and Milly Hudgans, and Ellen Hudgans. When I lived there my name was Emma Washington; itis now Emma Moore. I was sold in Richmond, and brought to New Orleans by John Davis, and he sold me to a Mr. Bruing at the trader's yard; and I was brought to Mississippi by John Alcorn. Address Emma Moore,Meridian, Lauderdale co., Miss., in care of Mashall Roberts.
