DEAR EDITOR - I wish to inquire
for my son. His name is Hannibal
Harris. When I left him he was
in Kentucky. He was only three
years old. He belonged to Mr
Sylvester Harris. His father be-
longed to John Woodforks. My
name was Winnie Smith. Then I
married Reuben Harris. I would
be happy to learn his whereabouts.
My name and address is Winnie
Chapman, care Rev. G. W. Smith,
between K and L 31st streets, Gal-
veston, Texas.
