22        LIFE OF CHARLES A. GARLICK.

                    HUDSON, O., DEC. 19, 1896.
MR. CHARLES GARLICK,
    My dear sir: From an extensive and interesting
account of your life in the Sunday Leader, I see that
you are now living in Jefferson, and feel that in mem-
ory of old times I must write to you, hoping to also
hear from you direct. While in the office of my
brother, Dr. A. N. Read, in West Andover, I often
saw you there and you will probably remember that I
repaired and put in order a revolver for you that
some one had given to you for use if you were called
for under that infamous fugitive slave law.
  What a change in the country since that time:
Now there can be no fugitive slave laws because there
can be no fugitive slaves; because there can be no
slaves under our flag. The people of your race are
still deeply wronged in some parts of the country and
although the conditions change slowly they will con-
tinue to change until the wrongs of your people are
all righted and every man will be esteemed according
to his merits as a man without regard to his race or
color.
  I shall be very glad to have a letter from you and
after these long years, nearly 50 of them, to renew
our old acquaintance.
                   Yours very truly,
                                  M. C. READ.
