                       NOTES OF TRAVEL.



    Atlanta, Ga.--My main purpose in going from Buxton, Iowa, was, as I
said in the April REVIEW. to attend the Negro National Business League.
Space will not permit me to do more than say it was a grand session. I
met and received royal treatment from Dr. Booker T. Washington, the
honored founder and President. elected now for the seventh time. His
great speech on Wednesday night, August 20th, to an audience which
resembled the number which John saw, will never be forgotten. May the
blessing of God ever be upon this great and useful man and his noble
wife.
    All the speeches and testimonials  made were very instructive and
inspiring.  I admire very much the high esteem Dr. Washington is receiv-
ing from his race.
    Dr. I. N. Ross, the very popular pastor of Bethel, secured me a pleas-
ant and very comfortable home.  I was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Robert
Anton.  Mr. Anton is the clerk of Bethel, and a subscriber for the "Re-
view."
    On Saturday night, September 1st, I arrived in Hannibal, Mo., the
home of my aunt, Mrs. Cornelia Bishop, a loyal member of the church, a
subscriber for the "Review." On Monday, September 3rd, I left Hanni-
bal for Buxton, Iowa, the seat of the Iowa Conference, with Bishop C. T.
Shaffer, presiding.  On Wednesday morning, September 5th. at 9 o'clock,
a large number of the Conference answered to the roll call. The Confer-
ence was very pleasant and most royally entertained in this mining town
of six years' growth, having a population of 5,000, of which 4,000 are
colored.
