Former Slave Deception

March 1, 1850

A notice of Feb 22, signed by Samuel May, Jr, appears under the title, Caution.

In it May tells of William Jones, a former slave, now going from place to place collecting money on the pretence of wishing to purchase his wife and children. He had promised to deposit money collected with May, for safe keeping.   May had provided him with a letter of recommendation, but he now withdraws that commendation, and here warns all against being further deceived by him.
