Dear Sir<br>
 
in reply to yours of the 20 for<br>
 
my opinion in regard to<br>
 
intimidation being used<br>
 
by the white People to prevent<br>
 
the Negroes from exercising<br>
 
their right of Suffrage in the<br>
 
late Election, I will say that I<br>
 
never Saw more freedom exercised<br>
 
at the Poles than I Saw at Midlothian<br>
 
on the day of Election. Every one!<br>
 
both white & Colored,<br> Seemed at
 
perfect liberty<br> to vote as they
 
pleased.<br> The Election was as
 
quiet and orderly<br> as any I
 
ever attended [test] i am editing this page
 
and the allegations made by _<br>
 
_ against the white people in regard<br>
 
to intimidation, as far as my<br>
 
observations have been, is entirely<br>
 
without foundation
