1861. Negro Hiring. 1861.

B. A. Cocke,
(Office on 14th Street, in Exchange Hotel Building, Richmond. Va.,)
Insurance and Collecting Agent,

Respectfully tenders his services to the public and the friends of Cocke & Close, for Hiring Out Servants, for whom he will endeavor to procure the best prices and comfortable homes, and promises them especial attention during sickness. Will also attend to the property of absent owners. and Collecting of Claims generally. Having learned from an experience of some years that advantage is derived from making prompt returns of the collections effected by agents, I am resolved to adopt this practice, and hope by untiring exertions that I shall be able to give entire satisfaction to all who may favor me with their patronage, thus merit a continuance of the same. To those with whom I am personally unacquainted, it affords me pleasure to offer the following.
