The institution of slavery has its
faults but it produced many in
stances of faithful and devoted at
tachment most beautiful to behold
between the master and servant and
even yet the footprints of this devo
tion can be seen lingering on the
sands of time. God old Bris died
near meeting Street a few days ago.
He was a full-blooded, coal black
negrro, but on bis ebony face was
ever a teeth-displaying smile with a
kind wqrd and in his bosom was a
faithful heart. Bris and his gray
mute have for years been familiar
to all as they moved about Meeting
Street. To me he was as much a
part of the place as the rippling
streams, the verdant hills and shady
trees. His death touched me with
a feeling of sorrow akin to the loss
of one of the family. Bris belong
ed to that old slavery-time class
of negroes who are fast passing
away and this is deplorable, because
they cement the two races in an at
tachment that will soon, I fear, cease
to exist with much sincere reality
His faithful mother was our cook
whom we children called mamraie.
Bris as a boy was a waiter about the
house and nurse at times and thus
endeared himself to all of us. He
carried me on his back many a time
and loved ta take me up in front on
his mule. He carried us to swim
down at the mill pond and often
came to the rescue when we got in
deep watet-and taught us .to-.hnnt
rabbits and loved the dogs that we
loved. During the war he went off
for a time doing duty on the breast
works, helping to defend the south
airaiu?t the men who were to set him
free, and how can I ever forget hi
faithful and obedient attentions to
my mother when his master was fa
away on the bloody fields of Virgi
nia? The unspeakable devotion of
this humble black man to my father
could not be surpassed; and his al
legiance to him was uudiiuii ish d,
by even the boon of freedom, as hv
spent all his pust bellum days ai
Meeting Street, save a small tim?^j
and the last year of his life wuV
passed on the.same dear old planta
tion-all after the war he was the
same faithful, humble, amiable and
obedient Bris, ready to get on his
old gray mule at any hour of the
coldest night in mid-winter to do a
favor for any of our family. His
life was spent in usefu toil as hie
rough tracks were left< imbed
ded in the loose earth following his
gray mule along the cotton rows.

As his humble body lies under
the shady oaks at Willow. Spring
