Psalm 107:21
Dear Editor: Just a line to say
hello. I know it is rather late to be
writing to you concerning vacation,
time, but the memory of it is so grand
I just want to tell you about it.
I went to the country, and, oh! The
city is all right but I would rather
live in the country. All summer I
had “fresh” milk, and eggs. Plenty
of fresh tender vegetables, fruit right
from the trees and vines; saw how
butter was made; learned what but
ter milk and smearcase (cottage
cheese) are.
My uncle made w’ine. My aunt
made preserves and canned lots of
fruits and vegetables. I saw them
dry vegetables. My aunt placed a
large platter of strawberries sprin
kled with sugar, with a large glass
pane over it in the sun for several
days and oh! Those strawberries were
simply grand.
I’m going back at Christmas time.
My aunt says that the country is just
as great and grand in the winter as
it is in the su imer.
My unde has a loud speaker radio
and they say that this instrument
adds greatly to the joys of the winter
The city is great but I think that
life in the country is greater.

Do you ever use the word sincere?
You know what it means, but do you
know the origin of the word ?
Long ago it was the custom to fill
all flaws or cracks in marble, and
sometimes in furniture, with wax.
Of course this was a kind of deceit.
The wax didn’t show', but because it
was soft it wouldn’t wear well. Soon
it would get scratched or come out
and leave the crack exposed.
So when marble or anything of the
sort was guaranteed to be flawless,
or perfect, it was marked “sine Cera,”
which are the Latin words for “with
out wax.”
So the words “sine cera” came to be
“sincere.” It still means pure or

The Bermudas or Somers Islands
consist of a number of islands (said
to number over three hundred) cover
ing in all about twelve thousand
acres of land. The group is a Brit
ish possession, and in modern times
its great value lies in the fact that it
is a naval station and coaling depot
for English ships.
Bermuda was first discovered in
1522 by a Spaniard who merely
sighted and named the islands, but
did not land. Not long after, Henry
May, an Englishman, was ship
wrecked on one of the largest of the
The story goes that he built, with
the aid of materials gathered from the
wreck of his pwn ship, a vessel of the
cedar wood with which the island
abound, and returned to England. He
later published an account of his ad
ventures and of the islands, which
were at that time entirely uninhabited.
In 1619, Sir George Somers and
others were also shipwrecked upon
the islands, while on their way to
Virginia. It is said that they, too,
built a vessel and finally reached their
It is said that Negro slaves were
probably landed here in 1620 and that
in ten years there were several hun
dreds of them in Bermuda. Beginning
with the latter part of the seventeenth
century and running through a period
of more than one hundred years, the
colored people joined their masters in
seafaring and became a “fine, bold
race of seamen.” They, built sailing
ships of from two to three hundred
tons from the timber of the Bermuda
‘cedar’ (a red juniper), and in these
vessels brought fish from the New
foundland banks to the coasts of Por
tugal and the Mediterranean, or
waited at the Islands of Madiera, As
cension or St. Helena for the return
ing Indiamen, from whom they ob
tained cargoes of tea, spices, porce
lain, silks and other wares of the Far
“They carried back port wine to
Newfoundland, and Maderia wine to
New England and the Carolinas; and
distributed all along the eastern sea
board of North Carolina the products
of the East Indian trade.”
The House of Assembly, for which
Negroes and Mulattoes may elect
members, and in which, if elected,
they may sit, dates almost from 1620.
Certainly from 1684, in which year
the Bermudas became a colony di
rectly governed by England.
