Marshall, Texas. Dear Friends in the Sunday School: If you have never seen a college "of the Negroes, for the Negroes, by the Negroes" you have something to look forward to. Wiley College is such a place. People may tell you that every educated Negro is an "exception" to the rule of the race--but look at this picture of a college chapel packed full of "exceptions"! Do you see the Service Flag hanging over the rear window? Don't forget what it means. Great things are happening in dear old America, and one of the greatest of all is the development of these ten million negro fellow-citizens of ours who sixty years ago were in slavery. When their education is complete what service they will render to the New America! Yours, At Wiley College.
