11V HILL WlLLOUUIIIIV
The day following our call at Mr.
Moncs Wharton's, we devoted mostly
to the writing of letters acquainting
onr pooplo with Dick's Intentions,
s to bis studies and mine as to be
ootaing a roportor; It would bo re
freshing to here produoe some of
Dick's lotters, written as they wore
with that quick, strong hand so ready
to send an adversary into tho gutter,
and se pcrfeotly in harmony with tho
strong and vigorous brain as the lat
ter indioted matter to bo hastily
thrown into words and sentences by
tho former. But, tbe temptation to
hero copy one of his lottors to tho
qeod quakercss is so irrcsistable that
I must ask tho reader to bear with
me. flcro it is:
"Dkau Friends: I tbank you for
the privilege of writing you 'freely
and fully,' as you requested me to do,
and in obedience to whioh kind re
quest I now proceed te do: I am
glad that you did not ehargo mo with
being heartless in the matter of tho
deception practiced by myself and
friend Bill while in your city, and
shall oyer thank you for the connerva
tive way in which you havo treated
the subject, I thank you, too, for
permitting your niece to communicate
to me in the lady-liko yet positivo
manner. Had she tried to Biiicld her
real position in the little drama and
treated it as a mere passinp diversion.
I should not havo regarded her in the
light of being the true woman whioh
I bow do. Had she tried to pass the
mattor as a jcke, I had not felt as 1
bow do. But having been bo true to
ber own womanhood as to admit the
part she bad aotcd I was only tho
more convinced of her royal grandour
of character, and tho superiority of
her worth. Believe mo when I de
clare to you that Naomi is to me tho
dearest, most precious, and the only
woman in the whole world for whom I
eare with tho view to ono day making
her a companion for life.
I say to "you nowmuch as you
may dialiko to hoar me that I do
hopo for those clouds and shadows to
be cleared away so that thcro.niay bo
no longer any prejudice in your minds
'Think of the fate that must be Na
omi's and mino if we are never moro
to meet and lovo as wo did during our
Think of tho lifo of a roan whose
heart is bound up in the person of a
lovely and loving woman, and who
must bury thoso foelings deep down
in the aoul.
O, think of all this, and then say
that you can and do forgive me.
Say to me that as God forgives, oven
so do you forgive. I enclose a letter
to Naomi, with the assurance that you
will hand it her, in ease my language
therein employed may strike you as
bomg entirely fit for her pure young
mind to lay hold upon. I also here
with hand you tho address of my par
ents, and trust that you may find it
convenient to correspond with
them. I am now devoting much of
my timo to my noglcotcd studies; and
hopo not to sudor to any great extent
by Ibis sojourn in this, to me, strange
land. Bill sends kind regards:
Yours to command,
I think tli 030 of my readers who
have followed me in my narrative thus
far, will agroo thnt Dick wa no cow
ard either in tho rough and tumble
affairs of life, nor yet in tho affairs of
sentiment. But now the timo had
oomo when wo must keep our appoint
ment with Mr. Mosos Wharton, and so
we were on hand almost to tho min
ute, and wero received with hearty
woleomo, not only by that worthy
himself but by his ontiro household,
Wo spent a most delightful hour at
tho tea table, enjoyed tho conversation
of our host, hostess and the daughter
who wo found to Lo a young lady of
refined education, and who was at tho
timo a teacher in ono tho high schools
of the city. Wo talked of tho people
and scones with whioh Mr. Moses
Wharton and our two selves wore so
familiar; talkod about tho schools,
great buildings, bridges and other
points of interest in and about the
4m city, una finally wero troatoa to a
fr wpg by the young Udy, with an bc-
. 'a- ' AAaantaisiAnf. nn thft niino. after
which Mr. Moscb Wharton sane a
plantation song, while tho lid played
tho accompaniment on his guitar. As
I now rcmciubor, ono of tho verses fan
about as follows:
"Aii mo'Ii hunt no inn' ('
lleiiossuiu anile coon,
U or meadow, o'er lilll oe r slio;
An' we'll ilncnoino, by
Ho cllmiiierln' oh do moon
On Uc bench by do llttlo cabin do'.
Den weep no mo my lady,
Den weep no mo' in ilav
An' we'll sliiRono souk Jo' do Ole Ken
IV do ole Kentucky homo far away."
I folt a thrill bo throuirh my heart
auoh as tho finest orchestral music had
. . )
novor boen ablo to impart to tho soul.

I looked toward whero sat Dick and
behold tho tears trickling down his
So touched were wo by tho render
ing of this simplo yet oloqucnt picco
of plantation sentiment that wo could
not for somo timo rogain sufficient
control of our voices to venturo
our leave-taking. But, tho emotion
passed, wo took our Icavo of theso
people but not bofore promising to
call and spond an evening in future
After reaching our quarters at tho
hotel, wo fell into a train of thought
such as may not havo been usually in
dulged in by young mon of our carlv
experiences, and soon wsre debating
tho great question as to whether or not
God had made the human family of
ono blood. We did not debato the
subject for tho purposo of argument
Bimply, but that wo might arrive at
just conclusions in tho premises. But
hero, like thousands before us, we
could do no better than lo agree that
the very fact of tho intelligence and
power to reason as so often demon-
(tralcd on tho part of the nogro, was
a self evident fact of his humanity:
and that, if of humanity at all, thon
of a completo humanity,
Now neither of us had up to tbia
timo troubled himself to explore such
a question, having lived as we had in
a country whero it went without lay
ing that the negro wbb so inferior to
the Uaucassiou as not to bo classed
with him in the same category when
it comes to the question of superiori
ty. I was, somo how, not as olear on
tho subjeot as I would gladly have
been, but Diok soemed to have thrown
off tho shackles and held forth, in tho
following impassioned strain: "Now,
Bill, with what we havo seen and
heard to-night, can it bo possible that
you can not sco that thoso pcoplo,

tensely human as arc we, or even Na

der what new freak would oomo next,
but thought that I would hoar him
So Diek continued:
"Now, my dear follow, do you not
supposo that tho joung woman whn
played and sang for us tonight has as
muoh refinement of sentiment as a
whito woman of equal intelligence can
lay claim to?
Do you not think her keen percep
tions aro equal to those exercised by
any whito woman, whoso opportuni

But, Uncle Pcto finally got sufficient

It would be vain to hero attempt to
