FORT WORTH, Texas. I have
had my religion a long time, and we
have gotten along well together, for
it has not given me any trouble and
I have not given it any, hence side
by side we have walked getting ready
for the Kingdom, and some day I
expect to step in and meet friends
who have gone before.
There are times that "cuss" words
just will crowd into my vocabulary,
and if you have any kind of heart,
the same thing may get into your
mind, for when you sec the way we
are treated by the hands of those who
execute the law, and then by another
lawless crowd, you would say with
one, "We have a hcluva civilization."
I am not going to say that myself,
but I am thinking that way. I am so
full of "cuss" this week until I am
just running over, hence let us pray.
Every time there is a lynching,
every time we have mob violence, we
say to the civilized world that the
American white man shows that he
is not capable of enforcing law, and
that he himself is destroying his own
institutions, and some day he will
have to pay the toll. It will be his
and not mine, for I am going to
serve God and do the right I have
in mind now, David Bunn, whose
soul has reported before the throne
of God for assignment either to
heaven or to hell, and those who sent
him there will some day. Now here
is the record they have down for
1916 Convicted of burglary in Tar
rant County in five cases. Given free
dom at the end of two years service.
July 15, 1921 Robbed City Prose
cutor Raymond Buck at his home.
Aug. 9 Criminally assaulted Mrs.
Clara Connelly at her home on the
Aug. 11 Robbed H. L. Wallace at
Wallace Coal Company.
Sept 28 Criminally assaulted Mrs.
D. W. Simpson at her home on the
Oct. 3 Robbed Miss Lillian Mul
key and W. H. Ketchum in Forest
Oct 4 Robbed H. E. Crowley and
others at Lake Worth Summer Camp.
Oct 5 Arrested in connection
with six capital offenses.
Oct 6 Rushed to Dallas County to
prevent mov violence.
Oct 10 Shot and killed while try
ing to escape on his return to Tar
rant County to face trial Friday.
He was an accused criminal, and
was in the hands of white men who
were the officers, who would have
to select the jury to try him, and
that jury would have been white men,
the judge a white man, and there was
no way on earth for him to escape
conviction, guilty or not guilty. You
will note that after his arrest it was
necessary to rush him to Dallas
County jail, which is in pallas. The
mob, I am told, was forming, and
the high sheriff got him away. They
formed and followed the prisoner to
Dallas, saying, ".We are going to
have a coon roasting."
When they reached Dallas, the
Sheriff of Dallas County met them,
informed them that the man was in
jail and was going to remain there
until turned over to tne snenn oi
Tarrant County. But that did not
satisfy the mob, they declared that
they were going to have him because
they had traveled all the way from
Forth Worth to roast a coon and
they were going to do it"
The sheriff pointed them to an ugly
machine gun planted in the jail, and
viformed them that it would be used,
and used to kill if any one dared to
unlawfully enter the jail.
"I faced them d things in
France," said a member of the mob.
Dinner was served for several
friends last Sunday afternoon at the

at or near the Dallas and Tarrant

west into Arlington, I saw the lights
of about four automobiles approach

then said, 'There they arc' Let's get

out of the automobile as to make his

pistols at him and he fell in the

some more. God will right all

and will trust Him to the end.
You will see that I have been go

will be going some more in a few
hours from now. I am going from
here to Muskogee, Okla., and will
spend Sunday in Kansas City, and
from there I expect to go to Chicago,
Wilbcrforce. Cincinnati. Roanoke,
Va., and Wheeling, W. Va., and then
return to Texas.
I want to report to my friends that
I am better, and I continue to get
well. I have been to Guthrie. Okla.,
one more time at the Park Sanitarium
with Horace Conrad, and he has
looked me over and furnished me
with a wash down. I am still taking
that medicine, the bug killer, which
was furnished me by Dr. G. C Hall.
He says that he is going to keep me
here a little longer.
I have been to the home and office
of Dr. N. T. Wallis, wonderful tooth
dentist doctor, and see that he has
a remarkable plant now. I did not
tarry long enough to let him know
me real good, but I say he had an
X-Ray, and all other kinds of the
latest things for half soleing teeth.
I met Dr. Borders, saw Hon. W. M.
McDonald, attended the Baptist Mis-
sionary and Educational convention,
saw Dr. E. Arlington Wilson, the
man who toted his pocket book in his
hip pocket in Chicago, and supplied
the light fingered gentrys with $67
and his railroad tickets.
Dr. Wilson has another book and
is toting it in that same pocket to
supply some more of his friends. He
was accompanied by his wife, who is
a refined polished scholar. I shall
have more to say next week.
