J. P. T. - 2.

less than his position as President, gives him the opportunity,
and may we suggest respectfully, the responsibility, of speaking
out. Hundreds of thousands of colored soldiers in the army and
millions of their fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers would
receive a new baptism of devotion to their country if it were
made clear that the equal protection of the laws was to be af-
forded all men, whether white or black.

If the President would see fit, while receiving the
delegation of colored men from New York Tuesday afternoon, to
allude to this question, we believe profoundly that the nation
would be stirred as by nothing else to renewed respect for law.

This Association wishes it understood that it does not
and will not condone the crimes nor apologize for the offenses
of colored men.

Sincerely,
John R. Shillady
Secretary.
