To live-that freedom, truth and life
Might never know eclipse -
Aglow upon his lips, -
Through years of wounds and scars,
- Mary Lowe Dickinson.
ASTOR, LENOX AND
“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.
