Dear Miss Impey,
                    Unless the teachings of Christ
and his apostles shall fail, unless the
idea of the Fatherhood of God and the
Brotherhood of man shall take its flight
from the conscience of men - and Christian
civilization shall turn out to be a
mockery, the work you have undertaken
must ultimately succeed. I think however,
that you are more needed in America
than in England. You must not think
I am doing nothing in the line of your
work because you hear little of me. I am
doing what I can to promote the cause
of human Brotherhood in this country where
it is most needed. Please find within five dollars
to help on the Anti Caste.

                          Very truly yours

                                            Frederick Douglass -
