TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
Lincoln Hospital for Freedmen,
Savannah, Ga., May 31st, '66.
There is in this hospital an old colored woman
by the name of Hester Aikins, which latter
name she received from the fact that she was
owned by one Mr. Aikins, of S. C. ; but she
claims to be a niece of Rev. Richard Allen, for-
merly a Bishop of the A. M. E. Church, and
says she was brought from the State of Pennsyl-
vania when slavery existed there. Her father's
name was Anthony.
Pastors of churches please take notice.
A. E AUGUSTA, M. D.,
Surgeon in charge 3d U. S. C. T.
