4 OUR VISIT TO CAMPBELL COUNTY VA. Rustburg Va. Aug. 13, 1888. At the earnest solicitation of the Rev. Dr. Jaegar, rector of this parish, I have been in these parts for nearly two weeks. A colored Church Sunday School has been in progress for sometime past, every Sunday afternoon, taught by the estimable wife of Dr. Jaegar, her sister Miss Lucy Page Wil mer, and Misses Jennie Nelson and Clara McCoy. I have visited several similar schools, but have never yet met with a staff; of workers more zealous 1 self-sacrificing and brave than those engaged in this work. With the many disadvantages and dificulties confronting them on every hand, their persistent labors have been simply remarkable, and furnish additional evidence what great good can be done throngh the agency of consecrated women thorouhly permeated with the love of God. Here, in this countv, we have a large community of colored people fettered with pure and unadulterated ignorance, and corrupted by the predominance of the Bapti...

Thus, we conclude that every christian, no matter how secure he may judge himself to be, is, nevertheless, a daily sinner. For "if we say that we have no sin, we deceive our selves and the truth is not in us." This being true, there is a need a daily need if we are to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Blessed L...

He is now about to lie down, possibly never to awake any more in this world, and he wants before darring to lay his frame to rest, pardon and peace. He can not get peace until he has pardon and that brings peace itself and that joy. In order then to receive such he makes his con fession to God. For a good confession there must be three things, Viz; it must be humble, sincere and entire. Our confession is humble when we accuse ourselves of sins with a deep sense of shame and sorrow for having offended God. Our confession is sincere when we tell our sins honestly agd truthfully, neither exagerating or excusing them. Our confession is entire wheu we tell all keeping nothing back. Thus, withl such an honest and sincere confession, we rise from our knees with the fullest assurance of pardon, folio weded immediately by that peace which the world can not give, and th...

2 The Afro- American Churchman. inent made to the Diocesan Consti tution may "put an > end to the growth ot the work of the Church among our people." I wish to exhort you to implore the succor of divine grace to cast out that fear, and to inspire you all with renewed courage to labor to counteract the evil results you seem to dread. I send you this exhortation, because I sincerely believe that the African race must find iu the Churclics of the Anglican Communion the powerful lever, which under God, will elevate them to the full stature of their Christian manhood. That race is under a dark aud heavy cloud of spiritual ignorance, It is only the entrance of G }d's word that giveth light. That saving word of inspiration (leaving aside the explanations of the human preacher) can be heard in its puiity in those Churches in the Scriptural order of the liturgical services, in greater abundance, and by a clearer and m >re systematic presentation of the whole mystery of ...

THE AFRQ—AMERICAN-CHURCHMAN. THiB-VIE THE RiV. MR. f CiAPP," OF BiITIIiORE. , We clip the. following-from the Letter in the Church Years published at Jacksonville,. Fla. pv.The race miastioiiis an important one.in" this btat£. Many of tl e cler- ' gymen believe in a negative policy. A stand the other way is taken with Rey. Walter C. Clapp, assistant at Mt.Calvary, and .rector of St. Mary's the colored church. He says; that something must be done with the race question. If not-the work among the colored peo pie will certainly be seriously injur- ~ ed and cannot be carried on successfully.- I think the Church should in some emphatic way declare itself so that people caw understand its position in regard to the colored population. The Church should make it plain t!)at on the race question it is atleast as large-hearted as the nation. That would be the true spirit of catholicity. The only ground of distinction, if' there must be any, should be on the line of intelligence and act.ial abi...

Ii is mdeed sad to read, almost weekly, of the sufferings of our peo pie in the far South, in this Christian land of ours such a state of affairs is beyond descnption both shameful and wicked. We do not seek to criminate anyone, reluctantly are compelled vith sadness to deplore such manifestations so unfriendly and opposed to the religion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They are not unreal or supposed trials but real. Those that are weak, illiterate, poor and even mis-guided should atleast have some manifestations of mercy and pity from those who are strong and influential in their several communities. The numerous accounts of harsh treatment and hardships dispensed towards the colored people farther South, can not be entirely in the imagination of the editors of our exchanges and false statements upon the pait of eolored bishops ana other ecclesiasti cal officers who travel largely and frequently through all ...

8 THE AFRO-AMERICAN CHURCHMAN. CHRISTIAN WORK There is a very large colored population in the city of Norf >lk. The Public schools are greatly inadequate to accommodate all the colored children eager for an education. Hence, the United Presbyterians, are doing a great charitable work in this line, with their college and able faculty of teachers, spending over five hundred dollars per month in carrying on their work. The Romanists have also a very large and rapid ly growing school in charge ot a Sisterhood devoted exclusively to this work. We also, in the interest of this great Apostolic Church of ours, are attempting to carry on a Day School. Nothing is appropriated for this work. It is entirely a venture of Faith. Besides incidmtal expenses salaries for two teach ers are to be raised. We look to you for help. Will you not aid this Charitable work ?
