Frances Harper Speaks

Home News, December 22, 1860

Frances Ellen Watkins, a semi-daughter of Ethiopia, delivered a lecture in the kitchen of the Centennary Methodist Episcopal Church on Monday evening last, on the subject of the wrongs of her race. There was a room full of hearers, many of whom think she is rather smart. Her discourse was of the intense abolition order, as might be expected. She held forth again last night at the Court House as Mrs. Harper.
