What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Eppinget, for that is the name of the original owner of the book, was t vinently one of the principals in a lottery business, for numerous of his letters are devoted to the transaction of such affairs ; but he was not conffned to ene thing as him many ;and interesting messages treat c ith a variety of callings with which he was connected. Eppinger was an attorney by profession, and he also written owner of slaves. A copy , of . one of his letters which is here repro- duced, presents the gentleman in a big stew regarding a female slave who had unceremoniously left iris protection and shelter. - • Savannah, 21st May, 1830. Daniel Carney, Jr., Esq., Boston. Dear Sir ;—If I thought thnt aq apol- ogy PPs necessary for addressing this letter to you I would make it, but be- lieving that you are not fastidious it is omitted. Since I saw you in Boston in August a negro girl belonging to me eloped from me in Bristol, R. I., in Oc- tober last. If I am not mistake!! I think you have seen and probably know her. Her name is Nancy. She was in Mr. Lowell Mason's family while they re- sided in Savannah for about three years, and I believe at the time you also eao here. \ She is from 22 to 26 years old, tall, thin, rather slender, black complex- ion, is intelligent and Mill read. She was afterward in the employ of Mr. Geo. W. Coe, when I bought her. About ten days previous to her absconding I per- mitted her to go on. a visit to Mr. Mason's family in Boston. About five (lays after her return she went off, from Bristol, R. I., and I have not bad any positive or certain intelligence respecting her Mime. A friend at the north has written to me 'mil stated that some of her colored acquaintance in Bristol said that Nancy had mentioned she was very much pleased with the situation of Mr. N1148011'8 family, and sire was going to live with them. From a variety of cir- cumetances I strongly suspect that Nancy has been .at MRE011 ' El since licit elope- ment, and would remain with him if he would permit her. I wrote to Mr. Mason tire day after she left me and on the 16th of February last I addressed a letter by Mail to \Mr. Reed, high constable, Role ton,\:on the subject of her being a fugi- tive Illave belonging to me and offered one bundred dollars for her reatoration to me. I have not had an answer from the letter. I am aware of the feelings and senti- ments in relation to slavery which gen- erally prevails at the north ; that many would rkther seduce and persusde our slaves to abscond and protect them against their owners. This they may consider not inconsistent sith morality And religion, but I %lee it tie downright robbery. Enthusiasts atiti hypocrite find little difficulty M :teCOnciling the most flagrant crimes with their accomo- dating consciences. To do what the canting scoundrels worill call God a servile they are ready to violate every command in the Decalogue. One of the A postlee has pronounced the doom of those \who do evil tnat good might come.\ If there many at the north who are influenced by such motives!, there are also very many I believe who are situated by different viees end have purer principles. The constitution of the United States guarantees slaves to their rightful owners and my object now is simply to ascertain where Nancy is, and then to take legal steps to recover her. 11'ill you have the goolness my dear sir to endeavor to find whether site- is in Boston and communicate to me airy in- telligence you may obtain respecting her. I will give one hundred and fifty dollars to any person who will deliver her to me in Savannah. Your frimuls, Judge . Foot sled Mr. Thomasson are in good health.' Your attention to this letter will confer IIII' important favor on one who e ill notch a ppr ec late your kind- ness. With much esteem and respect, Y Obt. St. K P. S. Nancy may be since married.

Messrs. J. S. Marshall, of St. Louis and John 'McLaughlin, of Niehart, Montane, shared with Mr. Wunderlin the ups and downs of a prospector's life in the early days, and they have enjoyed many pleasant honrs at this re union recalling past history cnd the mimes of many of their pioneer (Heeds.
