Slave Hunter in Boston

” A slave hunter from Macon, Ga., named Gunn, is prowling around Boston to ascertain the whereabouts of escaped slaves. Last Wednesday week, he called upon Ellen Craft, who knew him well, to make inquiries about some one who had escaped from bondage. The fugitives in Boston had better be on the look out at this time.”       (Liberator, April 19, 1850, pg 3)
