PUBLIC OPINION

Mr. Robert W. Colemnn,

Baltimore. M.

You are deserving of all praise for the enterprise you
have shown in getting out each year a full and comprehen-
sive directory of the Colored Professional, Clerical, Skilled
and Business Men and Women of your City. A like pub-
lication ought to be gotten out in all of the large busineaa
centers of the country. It would be largely to the advantage
of the race in the commercial world.

Receipt of your letter of December 3rd, is acknnwledged,
advising me that you have transmitted, under separate cover,
a copy of "The First Colored Professional, Clerical, Skilled

Dr. Spencer, President of Morgan College, was quite right
in saying that I would be most interested in the publication.
It will be examined with great pleasure, mid I have no doubt
that it is a compilation of much merit find one to be highly
commended.

Very truly yours,

P. L. GOLDSBOROUGH,

Governor of Md.

DEAR SIR :—

I hereby acknowledge the receipt, of "The First Colored
Professional. Clerical, Skilled and Business Directory," and T
congratulate you on your splendid offort. This one is far
superior to the first in every respect and fulfills the purpose
for which it was compiled.

In placing the Directory before the public, you not only
advertise the prominent people of the race mid their profes-
sion, but you bring them in closer touch with one another.
The Directory should be found in every home.

Your undertaking, in the face of so ninny difficulties,
deserves encouragement and the cooperation of all,

With best wishes I am yours respectfully.
