Dear Drother : I was so deeply touch

the other night at Clinton, that my mind
cannot find rest. On Saturday morning
when I arose I found my face bathed in
tears and my mind deeply fixed on Africa;
notwithstanding I feel that there is a
is a great work at home to do and a great
mission that I ought to help carry on, I
am deeply interested in home wcrk and
desire to help spread the Home Mission
cause. But there is one thing I ask, and
you may enroll my name on your Foreign
Mission Board as a Missionary to Africa.
I will go as a Missionary to Africa and
spend four or five years, if the Lord so
I send you twenty-five cents to put my
name on the roll of honor, I did not have
enough at Clinton to do so ; this will
make forty-five cents. I am already a

death of Mrs. Augusta E. Cuyler, who

he deceased had been confined to her
room only a short time. She was a most
excellent and popular Christian lady and
had numerous friends, both in Fayette
ville arid Wilmington,' who were grieved
to learn of her untimely death. She
leaves a loving husband, now pastor of
St. Luke's A. M. E. Zion Church, and
three lovely little children, the youngest
of whom eoon followed its mother in
death. .Rev. Cuyler and children have
the sincere sympathy of many friends.
By her death not only the church has lost
a faithful member, but a loving family,
husband, children, and relatives are left
to mourn their loss. Sad , indeed, though
from what we learned of her, she seemed
fully ripe for an entrance into the rich
ness of her reward. The loving wife,
the tender, watchful mother, has left an
aching void in the hearts of the objects
of her love that only the blessed thought
that she is with her Saviour, and they
shall be reunited to her, can fill.
