Letter from Chauncey Mead to W. W. Baker, November 22, 1883


Revision as of 11:56:51, Jul 03, 2016, Edited by

W W Baker Esq.
Dear Sir
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] and the allegations made by _
_ against the white people in regard
to intimidation, as far as my
observations have been, is entirely
without foundation 7777777777777777777
