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.           21

the time was near, became weaker and weaker until
he died with no demonstration

                PITTSBURG, PA., NOV. 8, 1900
MR. CHARLES A. GARLICK,
    Dear Sir:  Your letter of November 5th, which
was evidently intended for my mother, has been re-
ceived by me. My father, Thomas M. Marshall, and
my mother are both dead but I shall probably be able
to put you in communication with the family to whom
you wish to write.
  My uncle, Samuel Marshall, is the person to whom
no doubt you refer in your letter.  He died many
years ago, but his son, Thomas  M. Marshall, of Mars
Post Office, Butler County, Pa., is still living and
may be able to give you the information you require.
Another son of Judge Samuel  Marshall, who has a
remarkable memory and may be able to recall the
matters in which you are interested, is Kennedy Mar-
shall, Esq., attorney-at-law, Butler, Pa.
  I do not know the James G. Marshall to whom you
refer, but if it is the James Marshall who was a son of
Judge Samuel Marshall, he died many years ago, but
he has some sons living in the neighborhood of Mars
Post Office.
   Hoping you will be able to secure the information
you desire, believe me to be,
              Very truly yours,
                      THOS. M. MARSHALL, JR.
