September 3, 1904

Summary

The New South wages against lawless conditions of black citizens as Marinda Larremore,a black woman “with six little children to support, and a father’s care” has “sustenance denied to them, they now appeal to the public for aid.”

Transcription

The pathetic story told by Mrs.Marinda Larremore in the letter published in the Planet of August 27th,1904 has no doubt elicited sympathy from one section of this country to the her. It speaks in clarion tones against the lawless conditions now prevailing throughout the length and breadth of the Southland.
The New South is waging warfare against these lawless conditions, and there are indications that the movement will succeed. Certainly if other females as self sacrificing as Mrs. Marinda Larremore, a change, radical and permanent will be noticeable in this section of the country.
The predicament of this lone woman is pathetic and heart-rending. With six little children to support, and a father’s care and sustenance denied to them, they now appeal to the public for aid.
We hope that those people who sympathize with her bereavement will send her a donation to 324 Lake View Avenue, San Antonio, Texas. She defended her home and she is entitled to this recognition. Help the widow and the orphans, even as you send up prayers to “Daniel’s God.”
