MR. EDITOR-- I have just learned that four years ago a notice appeared in your paper inquiring the whereabouts of Jo Hill, colored, signed Betsy Hill, Margaret Hill, Fanny Hill. I am the said Jo Hill. Betsy was my mother, the other two my sisters. I am here, and own a good plantation, and am anxious to learn their address, which appeared in your paper. Can you refer to any files, or which is the best way. Please inform me which is the best course to pursue. I am willing to pay you for any information to get their address, or for a notice or advertisement in your paper. Please write me and state particulars. Address Jo Hill, Bryan, Brazos county, Texas, in care of Capt. Adams.
