A Note of Thanks and Appreciation.
I sincerely and from the depths of
my heart desire to thank every one
who in anyvway assisted in securing
my pardon. I am wholly unable to
express my appreciation of the un
tiring efforts put forth in order to
bring this about. I must and do es
pecially and most gratefully thank
the women's organizations, the pas
tors of the churches, the twelve
jurors who tried the case, every one
of whom signed the petition for my
pardon and assisted in securing it,
and the Board of Pardons and those
connected with it for their kind and
prompt action. I cannot refrain
from stating that the shooting was
wholly accidental. I had no thought
nor intention of injuring any one. I
deeply regret the unfortunate cir
cumstance that resulted in the death
of deputy sheriff Arnold C. Kaech.

REV. WM. S. BROOKS
Willie Brooks was born on a little
back woods farm down in Alabama.
His parents were the poorest of
the noor, and without education, hav
ing been reared in slavery.
It was a large family, as is com
mon among the colored people in the
Willie always liked to go to Sun
day school, and so, each Saturday
night, his mother would wash, dry
and iron his only shirt and only
trousers so that he could go to Sun
day school with clean clothes on the
In Willie's neighborhood they had
a day school for secular studies some
two or three months in the year,
thus providing the minimum time for
learning and the maximum time for
forgetting, and thus no doubt giving
rise to the saying that memory is the
thing we forget with.
When Willie was 19 years old they
had a young colored woman from
one of the missionary training schools
to teach -their two or three months
of school, and it was Willie's job to
take care of the school house.
Willie had always wanted to be
come a preacher, and on one occasion
mentioned the fact to his teacher.
Their conversation brought out the
fact that he knew nothing of the
preparation for the ministry further
than the supposition that a young
man was to begin and do the best
His teacher explained to him that
there were schools where a young
man could go and really prepare for
the ministry, and Willie at once de
termined that he was going to seek
He realized that he must have a
little money and some better cloth
and so got a job, such as it was,
and during the next two years earn
ed and saved $40, and got together
some better clothing.
And so at the end of two years
when he was now 21 years old, he
started off afoot, with his $40 and
his clothing, more than a
miles to the missionary
The way opened for him to work
for his board and work during vaca
tions, and he went to school seven
years and did well and graduated and
entered the ministry.
His first pastorate was the old St.
James African Methodist church, then
at 112 2nd St. S. E., in Minneapolis,
Minn, where he put forth his early
ministerial efforts back in the early
On one occasion a friend visited
him and found him struggling with
his next Sunday's sermon without be
ing able to make satisfactory prog
ress on it. They put their heads to
gether in the struggle, and the next
Sunday he preached a very commend
Rev. Brooks was married soon after
beginning his ministry, and found in
his wife the sympathetic companion
ship and encouragement that went
so far towards making him a great
On one occasion later it was his
privilege to visit Sweden and to be
received with splendid courtesy by
On it was his
privilege to visit the Holy Land and
th scenes there whic are so dear
heart every Christian.
Eac change of pastorate was
the way of promotion.
Thus Rev. Brooks grew in grace
and wisdom and recently was elected
to the bishopric in Liberia.
He writes to his friends that he is
getting along nicely in his work.
Thus Rev. William Samson Brooks,
IX is now bishop of Liberia in
West Africa, and thus endeth the
first chapter of "Life Among the
Lowly" in this connection.
