the millions of defenseless colored people who are at
the mercy of just that class of people who unlawfully
took from the officers Will Stanley who was burned and
shot to death in the public square.

In appointing commissioners to investigate
the acts and upon finding have brought to justice all
persons who in any way contributed to this shameful and
unlawful deed which has placed our entire country into
shame and disgrace, for we are convinced if these
atrocities are not immediately discouraged and suppress-

the Negroes of this Country.

Respectfully submitted
The Baptist Union of
Greater New York.
