W W Baker Esq.<br>

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