To Whom It may concern.
I am trying to locate my family. When I seen your last name
was a Battle I was hoping you are related to me. I want to Know if you know a Percy Battle, Josaphine Battle, and a Garfield Battle. I also have more relatives in the Rocky
Mountains in North Carolina. Please write back to let know if
you are my family. After the terrible incident that happen on
September 11 at the World Trade Center, I learned it is
important to keep in contact with your. I also learned family is
very important.
Sincerely Yours,
Sharlene Battle
