Editor or the. Messenger You
very kindly furnished me with a
copy of the first issue of your bright
and sprightly little paper, which I
have read with no little pleasure.
I hail the Messenger as another
evidence of the fact that the negro
American is advancing. As 1 have
often said before, we need the news
paper. .We ean’t do without it. It
moulds and directs public opinion,
and public opinion in our govern
ment is law.
Will not colored men and colored
women throughout the State and
country recognize this important
fact and give our papers that sup
port which they are able to give
them and which they so richly mer
it? I know that many of them are
not just what we would like to see
them, yet they are all answering a
good purpose, and it remains for us
who stay in the back-ground and
complain of their shortcomings, to
step forward with that aid which
will infuse ability, courage, manli
ness and independence into Negro
journalism in our midst. Let the
intelligent, thinking portion of our
people do their foil duty by the col
ored papers which are battling so
nobly for the manhood and charac
ter of our race. Place them in con
dition to wield greater influence in
the cause of justice and right, by
subscribing and paying tor them;
and my word for it, the day is not
far remote, when the colored press
of North Carolina and of the Uni
ted States, will create a sentiment
that will usher in a bright and a
grand era for our people and our
country. I might go much farther
and say much more of the power of
the public press as shown in the
splendid achievements of the white
race and of this mighty age of
progress; but time on my part and
space on yours, forbid.
Add my name to your subscrip
tion list, and send bill at any time.
Hoping you abundant success,
I am yours truly,
Chas. N. Hunter.
On Sunday, June l&th, at her
late residence, about 12 o’clock M.,
Mrs. Lucinda Alexander. She had
suffered much for the last six weeks.
She had been a member of Zion
Methodist Church for several years,
but was a few months ago baptized
and transferred her membership to
the Second Baptist Church in which
her funeral was preached on Mon
day afternoon at 4 o'clock by Rev.
Z. Haughton. She was buried by
the Good Samaritans who turned
out in large numbers. The church
could accommodate only about two
thirds of the friends who gathered
to pay their last respects to one so
much beloved by all who knew her.
She was the step-mother of our ac
complished Sunday School organist,
Miss Edith Alexander, and the fos
