MR. EDITOR― I wish to find the whereabouts of my mother and father and three sisters. Mother's name was Caroline Dupree, father Alfred; sisters Mary, Zelphia and Rachel. I left them in Alabama near the town of Campelton; we all belonged to Mr. John Dupree; after emancipation mother hired s to a Mr. Bob Echols. We (myself, and brother, Ben Dupree,) being very small, he stole us away and brought us to Bryan, Texas. While at Bryan we got, through Mr. Echols, several letters from them, but have since lodt their postoffice address. The friends round about Campelton will please assist me and my brother in finding out relatives; if found, address me at Brenham, Texas, care Rev. Wilds Hartley Jackson. MRS. MALINDA POWELS.
