INFORMATION WANTED.

Memphis, Tenn., Dec. 4

To the Editor of the Alexandria Gazette:

My Dear Sir: - I am very anxious to
find out the whereabouts of Benjamin
Harris, colored. Benjamin was a true
and faithful servant of mine prior to
the war between the States and my
most trusted friend during the four
years of war. He was with me on
the battlefield, and in the hospital al-
ways by my side. HE was with me to
the last, and did not leave me for 12
months after the close of the war. The
last I heard of him he was in the neigh-
borhood of Alexandria, Va. If through
your paper, or any other source, you
can find out his whereabouts and send
me his address, I will ever be grateful
to you. A. B. Carter,
Captain of Co. F. 6th Va. cavalry.
