quotations from Negro authors were
given. Prof. Kelly, as toastmaster,
spoke on "Our Guest," afterwards in
troducing Rev. S. L. Howard, who
spoke, being followed by Presiding

were over Bishop Tyree had been car

"jeans" to a groat bishop and a leader
of his race. In pleasing words the
Bishop heartily responded to all that
had been said.. The hour for closing
cuno far too soon at which time all
departed, hurrying to find seats
among those who composed a vast
audience at licthel Church to hear the
IMshop in his final lecture in the city.
"Our Boys" was his subject. The
two days and nights were well taken
and all were the better for having
the Bishop here.
