Today's picture shows three emancipated slaves from New Orleans. You will recognize Isaac White on the left from Sunday's Picture. On the right is Augusta Broujey. In the middle is Mary Johnson. I have found the following information on Mary.
MARY JOHNSON was cook in her master's family in New Orleans. On her left arm are scars of three cuts given to her by her mistress with a rawhide. On her back are scars of more than fifty cuts given by her master. The occasion was that one morning she was half an hour behind time in bringing up his five o'clock cup of coffee. As the Union army approached she ran away from her master, and has since been employed by Colonel Hanks as cook.
