He speaks English, French and Spanish. It is believed that he was in Clarksville, on Cumberland river, Montgomery county Tenn., and was, when a boy owned by RICHARD PRYOR, who employed him as a race-rider in Lexington, Bowlinggreen [sic], Nashville and other places. He was afterwards sold to LIVINGSTON LEWIS LEAVELL, of Trenton, Christian county Ky. who brought him to New Orleans, about 4 years and a half ago. It is supposed that he went up the river in a Steam Boat, perhaps to Clarksville, near which place his mother is said to be still living.
