IN MEMORY OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS

A meeting to honor the memory of Frederick Douglass was held last night in the Concord Baptist Church of Christ on Duffield street. Among the speakers was the Rev. Hiram Hutchins, whose 85 years, it is said, make him the oldest living abolitionist. Others who addressed the meeting included the Rev. Dr. Perry, who spoke on “Douglass, the Slave and Fugitive”; Professor Johnson on “Douglas, the Agitator”; T. McCants Steward on “Douglass, the Orator,” and Dr. Banks and Colonel Hinton on “Douglass’ Influence Upon American Thought.” Resolutions were adopted expressing the deep sorrow of those present at Douglass’ death and voicing the respect they all felt for his achievements and his memory.
