A PLEA IFOR A NEEDY
Editor of The News and Herald:
At this time when the needy ones
should be remembered, I beg to call
to the attention of the men in Fair
field who helped to redeem the State
in 1876, the case of Sam Davis, a
negro who rode with us in that cam
paign and who made speeches in my
hearing. He worked at one time for
General Bratton and also for Mr. Ed.
P. Mobley. Later he worked in the
Greenbrier section. He made a speech
at White Oak on one occasion when
Tom Mackey was present as one of
the speakers. Mackey had seen the
"handwriting on the wall" and had
The late Ed P. Mobley hat organ
ized a ball team at White Oak and
they were playing in hearing of the
stand from which old Sam was speak
ing. He paused a moment, and in
tones of condemnation exclaimed:
"Now look yonder! Here wesis try
ing to save the State for Hampton
and the county gwine to hell playing
base ball." It is needless to say
Sam's speech caused those around
him to laugh heartily.
Mr. Editor, old Sam lives near. me,
is utterly unable to earn at-ything.
He should be remembered. It took
a brave negro to ride in the Demo
cratic ranks in those days. If there
are those who are disposed to con
tribute ever so little, just let them
hand their gifts to the several banks
in Winnsboro; and if the sum'is mail
ed to me I will see that he gets it,
for he has become a partner in that
firm which Burns describes:
"Age and want, ,
The ill-matched pair."
Wishing everybiody in Fairfield,
both white and black, a Merry Christ
