ing attendance at the Convention now in session in your city.

You are aware, gentlemen, that no one can be more interested in the weal of the colored people, whether in the province of Canada or the United States, than myself. And when I consider the importance and utility of the questions that must necessarily come up before you for discussion, and the giant intellects among you, to investigate those questions, I am satisfied, gentlemen, that the cause is safe in your hands, and the general welfare of the people you represent, deep at heart.

And, being aware that the representative from this city is already among you, or on his way thither, I am satisfied that our own city will be well represented.

With high regard, and a deep and abiding interest in our common cause,

I am, Gentlemen,

Your humble and obedient servant,
