Mr. Editor - I wish to inquire
for my people who I left in Peters-
burg, Va. I left at that time my
sister with Henry Thornton. My
name was George Thornton. I left
my sister in the morning in the care
of Henry Thornton. I left my
mother in the evening at Peters-
burg, her name was Serlena. My
father was Jasper. I was there
sold to speculators Tom Brown and
John Booker. I was brought to
Columbus, Miss., and sold, and I
have not heard from my people
since. I now go by the name of
George Peden. I would be glad to
hear from my people. Address
me, care of J. L. Pratt, West Point,
Miss. GEO. PEDEN.
