where I was when. I wrote to you last
weck'and'theu see where X am as I take
my pen in hand to drop you a- fow-linca
fthis week and I will have a Jew
things to say about me, " and I will
think a fow things for ybu. I am not
Lgoing to tell you all that is in my
head, for If I should I think they would
turn mo out of church ,and almost turn
me out of heaven, for I have been
thinking some thing which would not
stand tho test in tho Sunday School
quarterlies, nor would a first-elass
preacher uso them in his sermons to- win
tinners for glory.
I have just felt so cussified, that I
hardly know at times whether I was
riding or walking, and I have actually
said some words in Nashville, which
would not do, but 1 am sure you will
pray for mo when I just tell you the
causoof me making use of such naughty
words.- 1 havo been going somo honey,
and don't you forget it, I was in a
Kentucky town when I wroto to you last
week, and now am in a great placo,
and Alabama at that.
When I left Cynthiaha. I beat it to
Cincinnati, where I spent a night at the
homo of Dr. J. Franklin Walker, and
then bright and early tho next morning
t was up and on my way to Xcnia, to
get an automobile carriage ear to tote
mo out to Wilbcrforcc, and there to
visit that great university, with Dr.
John A. Gregg is president. I am sure
that you know of Wilbcrforce Univer
sity for it is as old as tho hills, and
has been on the wall a lone time. Dr.
Gregg heard that I was coming and ho
had his "carriage car thero to meet me
and tote mo out. Soon I was on the
way, but that old earth was carpeted
with white, and I was delighted o.Beo
it in that condition. I had left my
overcoat in Denmark, S. C, hence
could not get it, and my stay up that
way was extremely short.
I am sure that you know Dr. John A.
Gregg, for I have told you about him
before. He is a man with a vision, and
was president of Edward Wators Col-,
lege, Jacksonville, until elected at the
head of Wilberforeo last May, and ho
is .at work, and you will beliovc me
when I tell you that ho is doing a
great big work in this part of tho moral
vineyard. Ho is just the man for tho
position he fills, 'and tho African
Methodist Episcopal Church will re
ward his service in 1924, by sending
him as. a. bishop to Africa. Ho is the
man for tho jlace. He is the direct
successor to Dr. W. 8. Scarborough, is
to be looked 'after soon by President
Warren G. Harding, and already the
place is filled with a strong man. There
are great things -being dano under his
administration. I will not have timo
to tell you as mnch as X would like to
tell you about President Warren G.
Harding and Dr. Scarborough, but' the
world will hear of it somo day.
They have a fine commercial depart
ment under Prof.. 0. S. Smith, is the
head, and ho is a fine man, but there
is not timo -for mo to tell yon these
things just now, for thero are so many
things to claim my attention. I met
the students, talked with them about
wars and rumors of wars, and then left
for another part of tho world which
was Louisville, Ky., the home of the
State University,' which is now changed
to Simmons University.
T thought of the late William J. Sim-
mons, for whose service the school has
nicklo in the slot before I could get-to
talk. Then when I was through there
stood in tho door of the booth a great,
big white man (policeman), who looked
mo right in tho face, and gave him. a
look right back. You must 'take "time
and look up somo things for us. But
now about that policeman. Ho said to
"You don't- know whoro you aro'do
"I don't know, I thought "I-was in
hell sir!" was my reply, "have I mnde
a mistake!" '
"You should havo gono in that Nigr
ger waiting room, for thero is a phone
in thero for you."
"I have not been in there."
"Then you. should havo asked somo
one about it."
"I would havo sir, but your royal
highness was not hero for me to ask,
hence I did not sco any sign up here
except public telephono and proceeded
to uso it."
"Don't give me any of your lip, for
if you do I will lock you np."
"I do not have any lip to spare, but
I havo no objection to you locking me
up. I am a passenger, and if you lock
me np I will get somo pockot change
which I very mueh need."
By this timo there was a crowd
around us, and he told me to cither go
in there, pointing to tho colored wait
ing room or go out, and it was then L
told him that I would go out and send
word to my friends that I had been to
hell and got out safe.
Such is our civilization, but I think
it will bo all right after a while. It
has been said that the darkest hour is
just beforo day, and it is certainly
somo dark nowT Think of Covington,
Ga., and it will make every drop of
blood in your body boil. Let us hope
that this is a step toward civilization.
Let us pray God to send us some mis
sionaries from China, Japan,, India,
Africa or any other heathen land
where we are sending them,' that we
may bo reached, and if tho religion of
Jesus Christ don't suit tho people who
do these things perhaps wo can get
something elso to him.
I am not going to comment mueh on
this matter for 1 am too sick.
at heart. I mado my way to the Mil-
lio Halo Infirmary, and was soon in
company with Dr. J. H. Hale and bis
wife. Dr. Halo if you will recall is
one of the greatest physicians in this
country, and his wife is at the top of
tho ladder in nursing. Sho is a tire
less worker, and is dovoting her time
in training our young women. The in
firmary is tho largest in tho country
supported by one man Dr. Hale, and
believe me, they have some sick people
there all the time. They come from all
parts -of the country. Thero was pres
ent the night I reached thero a doctor
from Huntsville, Ala., bringing some

This Dr. Halo can cut you up, put
you together again and you continue to

will run up in the thousands.
