From the Cedartown, GA., Advertiser

  Editor Advertiser You will please be kind enough to correct a statement that appeared in the last issue of your paper headed "Twenty Years." It is true that I was married to Carroll, but it is also true that he deserted me and my children in 1863. I raised my children by hard work, without hearing, or getting any aid from him since that year. He came into the field on last Saturday, three weeks ago, where I was picking cotton. I recognized him at once, but it is not true that I "rushed into his arms" and called him "my long lost Carroll," nor did I "cling affectionately about him" The "fire of my old love for him" had died years ago. I despise the man that would desert wife and children for 19 years. Not knowing what to do, my son asked him to dinner, and I asked a gentleman that was riding by to Cedartown to let Hill know the circumstances as soon as possible. Hoping I have not intruded on too much of your space, I am, Respectfully, Mrs. Hill (The Atlanta Constitution, Atlanta, GA, December 27, 1882)
