SEEKING RELATIVES.
436 No. 26th Avenue,
Seattle, Wash., July 7, 1910.
To the Pastor of the First Baptist
Church, Nashville, Tenn.:
My Dear Sir: Will you please make
inquiry in your church for my rela-
tive, Magnolia Scott? I left there
when a mere child, with a white fam-
ily, Lawyer Maxwell. I left a small
sister in your city by the name of
Annie Scott. We were separated at
that time and I have not heard from
any of my relatives from that time to
this.
You will do me a great favor if you
will please have a small notice read to
this effect in the leading churches of
our connection there in Nashville.
I am yours very respectfully,
(MRS.) J. T. GAYTON.
