INQUIRING FOR RELATIVES.
Philadelphia, Penn., Sept. 29, 1913.
Rev. R. H. Boyd:
Dear Sir and Brother—I am writ-
ing you asking you if you know of
a man in your city by the name of
John Ruffin. I am inquiring to try
and find him. My father was born in
King and Queen County, Va., owned
by Col. Alexander Fleet. His fath-
er's name was Lewis Ruffin, his
mother's name Fannie Ruffin. He
had two brothers, Lewis and Robert
Ruffin: one sister whose name was
Mildred Ruffin: his wife's name is
Jemima. Before her marriage to him
her name was Jemima Davis: her
owners, John Fleet, of King and
Queen County, Va.
Dear brothers, if there is any in-
formation concerning his where-
abouts it will be gladly received by me,
as I am more than anxious to find
him.
Yours for the Master's call,
REV. J. R. Ruffin,
1027 Dakota street, Philadelphia,
Penn.
