Where is Grant Royster?
Following is an appeal for the finding
of a certain Grand Royster, whom a sub-
scriber is anxious to locate;
"Will anybody who happens to know
the whereabouts of General Grant Roy-
ster (colored), more generally called
"Grant" Royster, please have the kind-
ness of heart to inform a kind, good old
house servant, Esther Overby, Moffett,
Va.? She has been too faithful in life
to fail to receive this modicum of hu-
man kindness at the hands of some one.
When last heard of he was in Man-
chester, Va."

State

Virginia
