Visit Eaat—ttoe Freedmen, etc Mr. Editor • —Having promised you some notice of the freedmen during my recent visit to the East, and as there were very many interested in my visit as far as they are concerned, you will allow me a brief space in your journal fur the 1purpose. When in Washington city I expected from reports in newspapers, and from other sources, to have found thousands of idlers about the city ; but, on the contrary, I found them well employed there, and hundreds in the public departments, and all, or nearly all, of the hotels are supplied with them ; the principal of the laboring is done by them, and very few private families have other than colored help.— We had the honor of a very interesting interview with Gen. Iloward, who seemed to take great interest in our projects.— will remember that we had authority to engage a considerable number, and in discussing the question we proposed to the General that the Government should muster into service five regiments of freed...

She came to Marysville with her husband, Samuel W. Williams, in 1855. She was a strict member of the A. M. E. Church ; a good neighbor, an affectionate mother, and a devoted wife.

It is painful to part thus, dear friends a...

On ward it came, and, to one of bis fancifu temperament, it was 6omewhat startling to see it suddenly diverge from its coursi for ho apparent reason, and turn towarc him with so strong an impetus that ii another moment it had brought its help less burden to his feet, and there remain ed stationary, a grating sound telling i 1 had run aground on the bank.

The Friendly Inipntittion. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 September 1867

The Friendly Inipntittion. I)r. Bethune was at one time settled over a congregation in Brooklyn, and was very popular. A Connecticut congregation gave him a call and "called" a thousand dollars per annum petter than the Brooklyn peoplo. But he ha<l formed a strong attachment to his parishioners, and thinking that his sphere of service could not be changed to advantage, ho was not tempted by an increase of salary. So he remained, to the great delight of his people. All of the Doctor's parishioners were not saints. There were sinners among them, else why preach the gospel ? And among the last was a wealthy and jovial pew-holder, fond of his lush, and apt at times to get more than he could conveniently carry. Neither was he particular at what time of day he got drunk. He suited his inclination, and had no set method in his cups. Bilkins—well that was not his name, but it will do—Bilkins heard of the Doctor's refusal, and was delighted. In the very hight of his pleasure he cr...
