Negro Hiring, 1862.

E. A. J. Clopton. Robert B. Lyne.

The subscribers have entered in co-partnership for the purpose of conducting in the city of Richmond a general agency business, embracing Hiring out Negroes. Renting out Houses, Selling Real and Personal Estate, Collecting Claims, &c; and from the experience which we have had flatter ourselves that entire satisfaction will be given for all business entrusted to our care, and solicit a continuance of that liberal patronage which for many years has been extended to each of us, promising to spare no effort to obtain good homes and fair prices for all negroes entrusted to us. Our personal attention will be given in all cases of sickness. Arrangements have been made to have negroes wall cared for till hired out. Persons intending to send us negroes for hire will do well by sending them by the 1st of January, to secure good homes. E. A. J Clopton,

de 17--2awt1stJ Robert B. Lyne.
