MR. EDITOR: -- I wish to inquire for my wife and children left in Alabama, Tuscaloosa county, 1860. The names of them are John Calvin, Joshua and Wine. My wife's oldest child was Linzy, and their mother Annie. Our owner's name was Pinkney Frisom. My name was Caesar Dent. The last time I heard of them they were at the Maples, in Marengo county, Alamaba, 70 miles from where I left them. I am a traveling preacher, and have retired on account of weak lungs, aged 55 years. I should be glad to hear from my friends before I die. My name is now CAESAR KING.
