MR. EDITOR---I wish your aid in
finding my brothers, Richard and
Samuel Gardner. My name was
Eliza Gardner; we lived in Balti-
more, Maryland, and at that time
my brother Samuel followed steam-
boating. There was another brother
of us but I cannot remember his
name. I was a nurse at a hotel
with a Mrs. Davis. I was stolen
and sold to Major Gibson, in this
country. Any information you can
give would reach me at Pickens
Station, Miss. A. LEMONS.
