Life, Including His Escape and Struggle for Liberty, of Charles A. Garlick, Born a Slave in Old Virginia, Who Secured his Freedom by Running Away from his Master's Farm in 1843
			

          LIFE OF CHARLES A. GARLICK.              13

of a river.  He has about twenty men to work for
him at present, and expects to have more soon.
  I want to know how you are getting along in Ohio,
and what has happened since I left that place and
all about everybody.
  I am cooking and I can't get time to write or I
should have written before. Now I have many
thoughts which I wish to express on paper, but time
will not permit me to do so at present.  We  have
not seen Allen Saunders since we left Ashtabula.  If
he has come over to Canada he has not got where we
are at work yet.
  I find land very good here and I think dairying
would be good business. Raising colts would also
be profitable.  A man can make big money at that
business for it would not cost him anything but to
salt them occasionally during the summer.
                     In haste,
                           CHAS. A. GARLICK.

A FORMER SLAVE WRITES OF HIS VISIT TO PIERPONT.
            JEFFERSON, O., FEBRUARY 11, 1884.
  Having lived in the county of Ashtabula 50 years,
I thought it would be a good plan to look over the
county, and while out on one of my looking trips a
few days since my good luck brought me to the hos-
pitality of the good folks in the township of Pierpont,
a town in which I never rested my weary bones be-
fore.
