To the Colored Citizenship of Badin,
N. C., Greeting-.
It is with profound appreciation of
the opportunity that I write you this
little introductory message. I cannot
at present expect space for a full
expression of the sentiment being
molded in my heart and 'mind by
my new environments in the colored
community of the little, beautifully
located town of Badin. I anxiously read
the advertisements during the summer
of this year; I noted the various ad
vantages offered the race by the
Tallassee Power Company here; but it
is but fair to say that I read these with
many doubts and feais. I could not
make up my mind to make any personal
test of the situation until recently fate,
fortune, or Providence caused me to
drift this way; and of this course I am
now extremely glad.
It is true that one interested in the
work of fostering negro education can
easily find a job; but in all places the
encouragement from those able to help
does not flow in plenty. Weighing the
situation as I see and understand it here
thus far, we, as colored people, cannot
hope for more encouragement or better
advantages for financial, educational,
moral, and religious advancement than
we have here. Those in authority have
placed all in our reach. '
I am told by those in position to know
that wc shall be allowed to want noth
ing necessary to our general advance
ment, and I have all reasons to believe
this from the fact that in all my life as
a student of the race I have not as yet
found the place offering the advantages
that are offered here for negro advance
ment on all common lines. We have the
Gospel ministry, efficient community
workers, doctors, trained nurse, effi
cient teachers, race workers and leaders
here, all at the expense of the Tallassee
Power Company, with as fine an educa
tional system and facilities as can be
found anywhere in the race. Why
should we fail to prosper? In fact, the
question of advancement is with us.
What shall we do with these privileges
and opportunities? Shall we accept or re
ject our chances so freely offered us by
our friends of the opposite race?
We thank the Company for having
collected so many of us—for in union
there is strength. Now the secret of
our success is in our one-ness of purpose.
Those composing the educational, social,
and religious leadership must under
stand one another, and all work to one
common end. So often do we misunder-
