Biography of a Slave; Being the Experiences of Rev. Charles Thompson, a Preacher of the United Brethren Church, While a Slave in the South
			
             BIOGRAPHY OF A SLAVE.           111
But severe trials were soon to overtake me, and
what I had already gone through was but an atom
in comparison with what I afterwards suffered
from the hands of my master, and by reason of
my condition of slavery.
  Thus ended my earlier experiences as a slave,
from my earliest recollection down to the time of
my return to Thompson's plantation.
  I propose to continue this biography, and in-
clude the whole in book form. This pamphlet is
printed for the purpose of enabling me to raise
money to continue my work and paying for print-
ing the whole in a book substantially and neatly
bound.
  To the friends of the colored race I appeal for
help in this matter, hoping that sufficient interest
is taken to insure the accumulation of sufficient
funds for my purpose.
  The remainder will contain my full experience
as a minister of the gospel, and incidents relating
to my efforts and the efforts of my co-workers in
building up the church of Christ among the
former slaves of the South, and such suggestions
as I may deem proper to aid to raise the standard
of intelligence among negroes.
