Letter from Pastor
Rev. D. E. Over pastor of Zion
Writes of Great Convention
Atlanta, Ga., 9-9-17.
Dear Friends:
We are now in the midst of a meet
ing in this city which will doubtless
go down in history as one of the very
greatest sessions of the National Bap
tist Convention. As for numbers we
simply cannot get a place in the great
city of Atlanta which will accommo
date the attendance. The out-of-town
delegation more than fills the audi
torium of the Friendship Baptist
Church, and it is impossible for the
city people to attend. At night many
more arc turned away than can get
into the building. Mrs. Over and I
have been unable to attend a single
evening session at the Convention
proper, but have been forced to at
tend the Woman’s Auxiliary Conven
tion on the other side of the city.
Another thing worthy of comment is
that the programs are considered of
a higher order than we have ever
known. The president’s annual ad
dress was undoubtedly a masterpiece
and simply set the Convention wild.
Your pastor preached the Foreign Mis
sionary sermon, which is considered
one of the most important on the
program There could not have been
a more battering reception of it by the
delegates. Many of the leaders de
clare it without question the greatest
Foreign Missionary effort ever given
to the Convention. The sermon is to
be published. This must be due in
large measure to the prayers of our
dear friends. As to the matter of
accommodations we could not have
been more fortunate. We are stop
ping In the home of a lovely young
conple by the name of Wynne, whose
home i> new, strictly modern, and
who seem determined to see that we
have everything we want. Our health
is fine and this is a trip which, while
Tull of work, is an experience of real
joy. We were also most fortunate in
the trip coming over and did not have
the pleasure of the “Jim Crow.” At
St. Louis we joined the Missouri dele
gation and at Nashville we became
a part of a great crowd from that sec
tion. thus securing sleeping car ac
com modat ions all the way through.
We will perhaps leave here Tuesday
morning and will spend a day or two
at Nashville, the guests of Dr. and
Mrs H. A Boyd: and after a day or
so in Kansas City and Topeka, we
will be on to Denver. If we find the
time to do so 1 hope to take a num
ber of photographs so as to give a
stereopticon lecture of the trip. At
lanta has recently been visited with
a great Are which swept out a large
section of the Negro residences of
the city. The gaunt and gutted ruins
of hundreds of blocks of splemiid
modern homes is a silent and pathetic
reminder that the members of our
race dwell here in the midst of per
petual tragedy. There are reasons
why many are going north. Whether
1 get the pictures or not there will
be many things to tell. We trust
this will find all the friends trusting
in Him who is able to keep, and to
whom we commit all our affairs.
Your Pastor.
DAVID E. OVER.
