DEAR EDITOR-I desire to in-
quire for a lady, Millie Bradley,
who was sent to Texas in 1863 or
1864, and who formerly belonged
to Dr. Bradley. After his death
the property was divided and she
and her daughter Mollie was sold
to Texas. They once belonged to
Judge Purvis, who was burned to
death at Monroe, La. I am the
son who went to Bastrop with
Ninie Hughes, who married Geo.
Miller there. I now go by the
name of Dusin, because I was
picked up in Louisville, Ky., by a
Mr. Dusin, and raised by him. The
The old Doctor used to keep a
printing office in Monroe on the
levee, and I used to roll ink for him.
Address me at No. 11 Villere street,
Algiers, La., or St. Mathew M. E.
Church, care Rev. R. C. Barrow.
FRANK DUSIN
