RETURN OP THE INVISIBLES. TO
APPEAL TO CONGRESS. GLAD OF
BROOKS KliMOVAL. THE KNIGHTS
(IProm our regular correspondent.)
Philadelphia, July 22nd, 1886.
The weather here for the past
few days, has been very pluasaut.
We had quite a rain storm Sunday
night which was followed by very
cool weather. It is qnite dull at
the hotels, and the city seems en
tirely forsaken. The Grey Invinci
bles arrived home Sunday after
noon from their encampment at
Valley Forge, (Washington's old
Headquarters,) having been in
camp nine days, all returned well
pleased. Prof. Small wood of your
city is here on a briet visit. The
reports from the different watering
places are very encouraging.
The Hotel Brotherhood will ap
peal to congress at its next session
to incoporate them. They shall
soon present a petition to the Rep
resentatives in congress from this
state to iuterceede for them and I
trust they will be successful. Rev.
Thos. Miller pastor of the Cherry
St. Baptist church delivered an ex
cellent sermon on Sunday evening
last, the church was packed as
usual. The Reverend gentleman
is well thought of by his congre
gation and they reciprocate by hav
ing a full attendance. This is one
of the leading colored churches
here and is composed of the best
colored families of this city. They
have just completed their church,
it having been thoroughly renovat
ed and they all feel quite proud.
Sir Knight John E. Waters, of
the American House, will be one of
the conspicuous officers in line on
the 20 d of this month, of the ex
cursion given by the Henry High
land Garnett order of Knights of
Phythias to Atlantic City and 1
judge they will carry a large num
ber with them, as a large number
of tickets have been purchased.
Nothing pleased me more, than
to see in the last week's issue of
your paper an account of the re
inoval of John H- Brooks.
1 think he has been over
bearing iu some respects and as he
could readily see he was not want
ed, he should have presented his
resignation belore. I trust harmo
ny will be once more in the schools
of Washington, and the poor teach
ers will not be subjugated to abuse
by one superior officer. I was also
glad to hear of the removal of Mar
tin Crouin and trust you have se
lected a proper man that will be at
all times a friend to the colored
man in the District and not oue
who will use the black man to fur
ther him in his position and then
cast him aside. 1 glory infcour
spunk and trust you will tenet
out all rottenness in behalf of the
colored people of the District, m
