366                   CHURCH REVIEW.

and comfortable accommodations for them, when he kept this
'acceptable fast to the Lord,' that those who had been slaves
might rejoice in the day of their deliverance.
  If he who broke the yoke of British burdens 'from off the neck
of the people' of his land, and was hailed his country's deliverer,
by what name shall we call him who secretly, and almost un-
known, emancipated his bondmen and bondwomen'--'became
to them a father, and gave them an inheritance ? '
  Deeds like these are not common. He did not let his 'right
hand know what his left hand did,' but he 'who sees in secret
will openly reward' such acts of beneficence.
  The name of Washington will live when the sculptured marble
and stature of bronze shall be crumbled into dust; for it is the
decree of the eternal God that 'the righteous shall be had in
everlasting remembrance, but the memorial of the wicked shall
not.'
  It is not often necessary, and it is seldom that occasion re-
quires, recommending the observance of laws of the land to
you, but at this time it becomes a duty, for you cannot honor
those who have loved you and been your benefactors more
than by taking their counsel and advice. And here, let me en-
treat you always to bear in mind the affectionate farewell advice
of the great Washington, 'to love your country, to obey its laws,
to seek its peace, and to keep yourselves from attachment to
any foreign nation.' Your observance of these short and com-
prehensive expressions will make you good citizens, and greatly
promote the cause of the oppressed, and show to the world that
you hold dear the name of George Washington.
  May a double portion of his spirit rest on all the officers of
government of the United States, and all that say, 'my Father,
my Father--the chariots of Israel, and horsemen thereof,' which
is the whole of the American people.' "

To the Editor of The A. M. E. Church Review.
