ANONYMOUS. Now Mrs. Ger
trude Howe Britton has been threat
ened with death through the mails.
Several letters which she has re
ceived are believed to have been
written by Wm. Mansfield Williams,
a colored convict who Mrs. Britton
befriended some time ago. At least
his name was signed to them.

is carried out. In any event, a per
son who is insane enough to put such
material into the mail is to be pitied.

does it while in his or right mind can
only be looked upon as the lowest
sort of a coward. Afraid to come out
into the open, but willing to hide be
