Sir: - I received a communication from Headqrs last evening, but, owing to an accident on the M.C.R.R. am not as prompt as I otherwise should have been in this case, which is to come off, so I am informed, at our
present County Court, now being held at Lexington, between Mrs Thurmon, and Charles Brown, a freedman, about a note for $100 00 dolls. for which Mrs J.S. Mims, of Corinth, Miss. became in part security for the aforesaid Brown, I will thank you to let me know per return of mail, what has been done in this case,
If Mrs Joanna S. Mims, or, Charles Brown, have been in any way deprived of their "Civil Rights," please tell Brown, to report to me, and make a statement of facts, immediately.

Very respectfully,
Your Obt. Sert.

Agent, &c.
