New York Times reports on runaway slave in Kansas

The New York Times reprinted an article pointing out that ex-Indian agent and "murderer" Maj. George W. Clarke had lost a slave named Judy who was last seen in Lawrence, Kansas but who was suspected of having "secured a passage on the underground railroad to Chicago." The article refered to Clarke as the "murderer" of "the lamented Thomas W. Barbee." (By Matthew Pinsker)
