MR. EDITOR -- I desire to inquire for my relatives. My mother left her son in Elizabethtown, Ky.; his name is Henry Clay Brown. My mother at that time belonged to Thomas Brown, brother of Elisha Brown. This was before peace was declared. Her name was Sallie Brown, but now Sarah Forest. My guardians were George and Sallie Hunter; they left New Orleans 17 years ago and said they were going to Richmond Va.; any one knowing them or their relatives will confer a great favor to me by letting me know. Ministers in Kentucky and Virginia please read this from your pulpit. Any information gladly received. Address Bennett H. Forrest, Chestnut street, between Valence and Bordeaux, New Orleans, La.
