I loft Richmond, via C. and 0. R. R.
at 4 P. M. last Sunday for Norfolk.
After 1 had settled myself down in
that "seat of down" in the parlor car,
1 proceeded to road the Ulblo, incident
with my promised discussion that
night of "The Hand-writing on the
Wall." There was no further inci
dents in connection with (lie 'rip to
Newport News, Va. Arriving at the
wharf, we hoarded the C. and Q. steam
or. Wo looked over towards the
great Newport News Dry Dock in a
vain effort to see the German cruiser,
the Prinz Eltel Fricdricli, hut w*
wore unable to do so.
THAT ItKAClNti SKA A1U.
The trip across was uneventful
The bracing sea air was a God-sont
blessing to mo. I remained on dock
during the ontire trip across. Arriv
ing at Norfolk I saw the familiar faces
of Mr. William H. Thorogood and
Major William H. Tyler, I entered a
waiting automohllo and a few moments
ia'ler was In Mr. 'I'lioroRooiT's roiiltlence
where liutny momhora of tlio Order of
Knights of Pythlasi wore wailing to ?

For some time, I had lost my up
potlte, but on this Sunday evening t
found it. Mr. Samuel L. Tucker .
served tho repast. Seated at. tho tft- .
bio were also Sergeant T. W. Smith,'
lieutenant O. W. Williams, Lieuten-.

kins, Major William H. Tyler, Mr. J
Samuel L. Tucker. i
I was to bo at tho St. John's A. M. :
E. Church at 7:30 and when I entered;
the Church, I found the galleries tilled ?
with an oxpoctant audience, while on ?
tho main lloor, all tho seats that had
not been specially reserved were like-,
wise occupied. j
I Ml. HUNTKK'S lU.-I.lMT.
Rov. Dr. E. H. Hunter, tho able and
energetic pastor, on whose invitation
I had como, advanced to meet me. It
is needless hero for me to further de-j
scribe the scene. The main auditor
ium and galleries had standing room
at a premium and when I spoke, the
Chautauqua salute given made a deep
impression upon me. I was in the
midst of my friends. When the time
came for me to speak, it was 9:15 and;
from Information previously given, I
was under tho impression that it was
time for me to announce the benedic
A "r,AY" SKKMON. ,
But Rev. Dr. Hunter informed tho
congregation that 1 was to deliver a
"lay sermon," that ho had Just had
me in a consecration meeting and that
I could proceed. His commendation
and laudation of me afforded some
embarrassment, but I proceeded to j
take about forty-live minutes of those
colored folks' time. I spoke to their
infinite satisfaction and my own.
When I concluded and the last word
had been said, many friends crowded
around me. When I reached the door
a delegation of Pythians were out
there to consult me on matters per
taining to the Order of Knights of
When I reached the Thorogood res- j
idenee, another delegation was waiting
to consult me on affairs pertaining to
the Order oi knights of Pythias. When
I was well under way there, a tap on
the door and a messenger sent word ?
that knottier delegation was down- !
stairs to see mo pertaining t.o affairs
of the Knights of Pythias. Finally, j
I saw all of them and with promises
and rulings, I finally succeeded in
getting into that Thorogood oed, whore
I left my troubles, trials and tribula-f
t ions in rny shoes and took with mo '
my hopes of happiness for tho future.
I slept, tho "sloop of tho just."

I awoko early, but I did not. got up
until 7:30. Mr. Thorogood came into
tho room and later Major William H.I

breakfast, but I decided to tako a walk
and later 'all of us reached a restau

served to brighten us up When I fi

Kdilor of The Richmond JMfjiot:
Let. me speak a word lor our May
Convention. My dear brethren, the
Virginia Baptist State Convention this
year is forty-eight years old. I have
been with you thirty-two years, so
that the history of our Convention is
a part of my life, ? indeed, I regard
it as one of the most, valuable parts
of my life. As 1 look hack sometimes
as I often do, I find throbbing, oxult
ing, not to say ecstatic, emotional
feelings in recalling the. various ses
sions of the Convention during all
these years. The spirit o? ihat great. ,
body comes before me, Thirty-two
years ago! I met the first session in
llie old First Baptist Church, of Rich- .
There comes before me now, men
like James H. Holmes, ltiehard Wells,
William Troy, Fields Cook, S. W. Mad
den, Father King of Norfolk, Richard
Spiller I'. F. Morris, Father Jimison
of Buclianon, J. M. ArmlstOfld, J. 10.
Jones, ? oh! and a hundred' r?oro .who ?
were vleing with one another in efforts ?
to advanco the cause of the Master
and to make a way for a race who had
so recently come out of slavery.
Those men said and di<jj soino groat *
things in those days; oi^e^.tlie grand- ?
est ever sot atloat by them was the
bringing Into existence 0/ ; Virginia
Theological Seminary uuo College,
which is now the pride of the Nogro .

all worthy avenues of civilized life.
We are not ashamed of tho grand re
sults following tho labors of the fath
ers. Many of the best ones now sleep
in their graves, but a few of the old
guards, reinforced by the mighty
giants and heroines who have grad
uated from our great institute of
learning, are left to perpetuate the
work. As each ouo passes away, wo
carry good news to Heaven to those
gone before. 1 am sure Gregory W. J

11. Bowling, with all of his eloquence
and beautiful power of expression, met
Hayes and Fox and they three re
joiced in Heaven over the reports from
the world below. C. H. Phillips and
W. L. Tayior carried other reports of
great victory. Soon some of the rest
of us will be going that way. Shall
we carry good news?
The way to answer the question is
