In Memoriam

Frederick Douglass

To live-that freedom, truth and life

Might never know eclipse -
To die, with woman's work and words

Aglow upon his lips, -
To face the foes of human kind

Through years of wounds and scars,
It is enough ;-lead on--to find
Thy place amid the stars."

- Mary Lowe Dickinson.

In Memoriam

Frederick Douglass

“I have seen dark hours in my life, and I have seen the darkness gradually disappearing, and the light gradually increasing. One by one, I have seen obstacles removed, errors corrected, prejudices softened, proscriptions relinquished, and my people advancing in all the elements that make up the sum of general welfare. I remember that God reigns in eternity, and that, whatever delays, disappointments and discouragements may come, truth, justice, liberty and humanity will prevail."

Extract from address of Mr. Douglass, Docember 7, 1890.
