Mr. Editor - I wish to hear of
my mother, Viney, brothers James
and Charley, and sister Sarah.
Brother Charley was nick-named
"Fish." I do not know mother's
name; she belonged to Wm. Harris.
They were carried back to Ala-
bama, I know not what county.
She left me in Texas with James
McCloud and Thomas Harris, a
brother of Wm. Harris. I am her
oldest son, and have not heard
anything of them since the war.
Address me at Hockley, Texas.

JESSE IRVIN.
