I desire to express my profound"
thanks to my friends, both white
and colored, for the valuable as
sistance rendered to rae. Within 48 j
hours after my barn was burned my
neighbors had hauled material and
erected another building. They also
bought and presented to rae a fine
mule, thus sharing the loss which
I sustained by having five head of
stO'^k burned. Notwithstanding m\
heavy ioss by the fire, I feel that I
have been really benefitted by the
many manifestations of true friend
ship from my neighbors.
