Something of a White Woman
Who Married a Negro
Property Left to the Douglass Memorial
Association Museum of Slavery Rel
ics Her Work in the Lecture
From the Washington Post.
Surrounded by books and pict
utes and busts, and by the memo
ries of her world-famous husband,
and in his historic home, Cedar
Hill, in Anncostia, D. C, Mrs.
Frederick A. Douglass, little less
remarkable a character than her
husband, died at the age of 65
years, after a long and painful ill
ness. She had not been off the
high hill overlooking the city,
which was the Douglass home, for
nearly a year. She had been con
fined to her bed for three months
with a chronic disease. For
weeks it had been known that she
would never leave her bed. It
was Mrs. Douglass' wish that she
be buried at Cedar Hill, and that
the body of Mr. Douglass now it
Rochester N. Y., be buried there
also. It is not known if this can
be done, but the arrangement will
be made if possible. It is thought
that Rev. Dr. Grimke, a litelong
friend of the Douglasses and the
minister who married them, will
officiate at the funeral.
The marriage of Mrs. Douglass,
formerly Miss Helen Pitts, a white
woman of education aud refine
ment, to Frederick Douglass, the
famous negro leader, was an event
that received world wide notice
Miss Pitts was born at Honeoye,
N. Y. She was educated at Meunt
Holyolje, and was a member of the
District Alumni Association of
that college. She was said to be a
woman of fine mental training and
oi iaoinatmg manner, one was
married to the negro leader in
January, 1884, being his second
wife. She was about 45 years of
age at the time of her marriage.
Mrs. Douglass took part actively
in her husband's life. She went
with him on a European tour and
the stories of the time said that
they were received with much hos
pitality in the European cities.
Later she went with him when he
was made minister to Haiti
When he was sent as commission
er to the World's Fair at Chicago
by the Haitien goverment she ac
After Mr. Douglass' death in
1894, at Cedar Hill, Mrs. Douglass
continued to live there. She did
some literary work, writing a num
ber of lectures, which she deliver
ed in New England and New York.
Her chief work, however, was
that of planning "The Frederick
Douglass Memorial and Historical
Association" and of securing the
passage of the law incorporating
Soon after the death of her hus
band she decided that their home,
Cedar Hill, should be given at her
own death to such an association
and that it should contain a mu
seum of Douglass and anti-slavery
memorials. The law was passed
two years ago and the association
is now a reality. It is supposed
that Mrs. Douglass will leave the
large property and all that the fine
old house contains of books and
manusoripts and pictures and
sculpture to the association.

The Professional World,
Was it Murder?
The death of Alex Washington,
who was found dead in his room
on the morning of Nov. 30th is
still a mystery to many of the peo
ple of Columbia. Although the
coroner's verdict was that Wash
ington could have killed himself,
there are scores of people who be
lieve tne man was foully dealt
with. Washington was shot twice
with a 32-calibre rifle and two
deep gashes on his throat, and
when found was lying in bed cov
ered up. If his was a case of sui
cide it is without parallel. Too
many mysterious murders occur in
Columbia. Less than two years
ago Smith Boswell was found with
his throat cut in his room. While
the circumstances surrounding this
death were much more favorable
to suicide many persons in Colum
bia will never believe that Boswell
took his own life. A good "sweat
box" might lessen the mysteries
on such occasions.
Persons desiring to employ help
or persons desiring to secure em
ployment, will do well to call and
see me at the Herald office.
