Hallsboro for Nov 22 - 1883
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] 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
I am Respectfully yours
Chauncey Mead
formeraly of Illinois
I heartily endorse the above Israel Wall formaly of Illinois
