iii the State in the behalf of Morris
College. You are hereby asked and
urged to immediately take a con

looked after at once.
The amount asked for is twc
dollars ($2 00) from each church,

dividuals who can easily give one
dollar ($1.00) and we earnestly
call upon all such to do so.

Union, Associatisn or individual
can give more than the amount
asked for, by all means do so, but
?lo not fail to give the amount here
in stated. Kvery dollar contributed
in response to this appeal will be
applied to the college without de
ducting a single cent for expense.
Now brother, the matter is
squarely before you Do you love
your denomination? Do >ou want
it to own something? Then now is
your time to act. Morris College
does not belong to any particular
section, or association; it belongs
to all sections, to all association?, to
the denomination-to one and to
every Negro Baptist of the state.
Now, show whether or not you
care for your own.
We send this appeal to each pastor
with the hope that he will present
it at once to his church and Snnday
school, and help in .whatever u^ay
he can in this vital and pressing
The reputation of the Baptists is
at stake. Line up and ask God to
help save the two hundred and
fifty thousand (250,000) Baptists
in this state.
