C.H. J. Taylor-The Ticket

I have never known a sensible Negro to desert his admitted friend. It would have been surprising if the colored race had voted any ticket save the ticket of Lincoln, John Brown and Grant. Out on a tempestuous sea, with a leaking barque and an inexperienced crew, what was more natural than for them, gladly, to allow themselves to make for the harbor which appeared the most inviting. They voted in the white political scums they thought to be their dearest friends, but who, in fact, proved themselves their greatest enemies.- C.H.J. Taylor, 1889
