Greenville, June 6.-1 am at the
Baptist State Convention, which
met in the Springfield Baptist
church on Wednesday. It is com
posed of a fine body of men. The
program was too full to give satis
faction. Sv^%^of thc visitors, I
among thenif^Srld'be given but a
few minutes to speal* to the Con
vention. Dividing my time be
tween the Convention and THE
SOUTHERN INDICATOR subscribers,
I have been more than ordinarily
busy. As the Rev. Mr. Watkins,
the Secretary of the Convention,
says, he will forward to us for pub
lication a full account of the pro
ceedings of the Convention, I shall
omit a detailed statement of what
transpired. All the old officers
were re-elected. This is said to be
.one of the best sessions in the his
tory of the Convention. It was
also one of the best attended. The
Springfield Baptist church is a
handsome, modern brick structure,
capable of seating comfortably
about 750 people. It looked,
Thursday and Friday nights, as
though 1,000 persons were packed
Woman is becoming quite a fae
tor in the Baptist Convention, more
so than in any of the other religious
bodies, except the Presbyterians.
One can easily observe that the
Baptists are making rapid strides
along the path (?f education. The
number of scholarly as .well as elo
quent men is on the increase. Dr.
Goodwin, our hj^st, appears to be
doing a splendfo work in Greett
U?^--^s~^em^ainm?i?t of the
onvention seenT to give general
satisfaction. The night of my
arrival I was entertained at the
home of Mr. and,*Mrs. B. B. Mar
tin and had as my companions our
Columbia Dr. Goodwin and Deacon
Goode, of Second Calvary. We
talked one another to sleep. The
next morning my long-time friends
Mr. and Mrs. "Phil" Parker, whom
I had known for 37 years, and to
whose home I had been assigned,
took charge of me till I left. Mr
and Mrs. Martin are excellent peo
ple, and entertained us in fine style.
THE SOUTHERN INDICATOR has been
going to their home regularly for
some time. No one in Greenville
can entertain better than Mr. and
Mrs. Parker and Miss Parker
Thirty-seven years ago the last of
this month, immediately after my
graduation from the South Carolina
University, with no definite plan for
my future, I went to Greenville to
find something to do. I found a
country summer school and a home
in a Baptist family among whom I
found life-long friends. Two years
later I became the principal of the
Greenville public school. I made it
a graded school. I took it with 160
pupils. Ten years later, when I
left Greenville to become pastor of
the Silver Hill M. E. church and
later principal of the Spartanburg
public school also, 1 ??\ft two
schools, of the larger of wtiich I
was principal, and, I think, over 600
pupils. 1 want to speak of four of
the teachers (two of whom bad
been my pupils also) whom T had
with me there-Mrs. Georgia
msoii, Mrs. Mamie Poole
Irs. Katie Fair-Goodwin
Emma Johnson. I knew!
on when ike was Gcor
Sbe wa? one of the,
, ._st girls in Greenville
county and one of the most modest!
and ladylike. She has raised a
family of boys and girls, two of
whom, Dr. Charlie Johnson and,
Miss Lucile Johnson, have more
than a State-wide reputation. Mrs.'
Mamie Poole-Sloan is the daughter
of Rev. Gabriel Poole, the founder
and first pastor of the Springfield
Baptist church. Tt is no flattery to
say that she was one of the quietest
gentlest and most pious women I
had ever had the pleasure of being
associated with. Mrs. Sloan still
sings in the church choir and
teaches school. I
Katie Fair was the recognized,
leader in social, educational and re
ligious matters in Greenville. I
have met but few women like her
anywhere. She was a born leader.,
lier uncle, who was also her,
adopted father, was in good circum
stances and spared nothing to give
Miss Katie and his eldest daughter,
Miss Myra, a good education andjj
:o fit them for social position. ,
What Kalie said and did in the
home or what Katie said and did in
thc Sunday School or in the literary
society usually went. Twice mar
ried, and now a widow with four
children, every one a credit to her,
having had to drink deep from the
cup of sorrow, and yet with grace
and submission, and faith in God.
She is at her post in the same school
where 1 found her and where I lef11
ber when 1 moved to Spartanburg.
Miss Emma Johnson is in a class
by herself. She was never fond of
male society. She loved music and
loved ber books . She loved little
children, and is one of the best pri
mary teachers in the State. For
time she was an inmate of my home.
She was always a devout Christian?
She is still teaching where I left
ber. She is in feeble health, and
I learn, has an assistant, receives
half pay, and is at liberty to stay at
home whenever she feels unable or
indisposed to come to school. If
she were a white teacher the school
authorities would retire her with an
allowance sufficient to give her a
reasonably comfortable support.
Her salary has never been large and
I doubt seriously if she has saved
anything worth mentioning.
During my principalship , in
i Greenville a revival broke out in
the school, and scores of the pupils
were converted. Mrs. Georgie
Johnson was the only unconverted
teacher among us. She, too, got
under conviction at the school. The
three other teachers whom I have
named and one other. Miss Annie
Arnold, and myself, converted the
school into a meeting house, and
got around her and the other
mourners among the larger schol
ars, and sang and prayed with
them. It was hard work. My
recollection is she because so sick
sin sick-that she had to stay home
on a Friday and "got religion" on
Saturday. Sunday, when she came
to church we church folks (Wesley
M. E. church) had one of the big
gest shouts Greenville bad ever
seen. Soon after that the brethren
told me I was called to preach,
kicked like a Texas pony, but
finally caved in, and I became a|
I w ish I had time to speak of |
some of the former pupils and pat
'ronfc, "dnd- ot^er^^riend^whOrrif T
have met. In the language of Col.
Roosevelt, I have certainly had
0"frcourse, I had to go to see our
two Greenville correspondents, Mr.
Butler and Miss. Glascow. Miss
Hattie is going to take a new start
in her efforts for THE INDICATOR,
and Mr. Butler will not be a whit
behind her. I find THE SOUTHERN
INDICATOR very popular in Green
ville. Mr. Butler and Miss Glas
cow will make the subscribers very
populous in Greenville.
This letter his been written under
difficulties I need not burden the
readers with mentioning. I can
only say in the language of a young
colored gentleman of slavery days
who had gone to his young master
to have him write a love letter for
him. After the aforesaid young
boss had written about as nundi as
I have, he wearily said, "Well, Sam,
is that all?" Sam replied, "Well,
Boss, just close by saying 'please|
'sense bad writin' and spellin'.' "

Just the Thing for Teachers.
The State Summer School, ad
vertisement of which appears in
another column of this paper will
be largely attended by teachers
from all portions of the state. The
State College at Orangeburg ?san
ideal place for this gathering of I
teachers, being spendidly equip
ped for agricultural and vocation
al work, which will be attractive
features of the courses outlined.
Some of the leading and most ex
perienced instructors of the state
have been invited to places on
the faculty and facilities for their
work have been provide? for in
appropriations by the Legislature
and the Slater Fund. The State
Department of Education has,
given its hearty endorsement to
this project, and several of the
county superintendents have sig
nified that they will not re-issue
certificates to teachers who do
not attend. These incentives
should largely increase the enroll
ment, and it is hoped that all
progressive teachers will make
arrangemeats to be on hand when
the roll is called on June 29th.
The school will last four weeks.
