Do You Know Them?

I would like to know the whereabouts
of my sisters. When last heard
of about thirty years ago one was living
in Rappahannock county, Va. Her name
was Mrs. Sarah Scott. The other, Mrs.
Jane Harris, lived in Richmond, Va.,

I had a nephew who lived on Church
Hill. His mother's maiden name was
Polly Fox. I will pay a reward for any
information concerning my relatives.

ANDERSON LEWIS,
