He also spoke of Dr. Wisher's knack
for getting money from the white
people, due to his upright Christian
character and to his honesty and
frankness of heart. Concluding his
remarks, he stated that Dr. Wisher
can and will perform a wonderfful

am surprised at Rev. Haynes saying
they are satisfied with the deception
played on the loyal Negro Baptists in
this transaction. If he has taken the
$5,000.00 we gave him and paid it or
the property in the name of the trus
tees of Roger Williams, it was wrong
and a breach of trust. Wie don't be
ti'eve he did that, then if he paid the
money of the trustees on the ground,
'-e took advantage of us, for we gave
our money to be paid on the ground,

We will not be satisfied with the
simple statement that the property
belongs to the Negro Baptists. With

Haynes to .Indulge in reflecting epl

who are dealing with a principle in
this matter, for there will he no let up
until the resnonsibilitv for this loss
to the Negro Baptists has been placed
on the guilty party. If Rev. Hayne?
didn't know that the Negro Baptists
were being cheated he ought to con

into their own.

The Negro migrant has brought that
