The citizens generally afforded no assistance in meeting these difficulties. Stripped to a great extent

Does Colonel Brown think that would heal them? We imagine not, from the portrait o the conduct of the citizens towards these unfortunate people, Colonel Brown is not just. He transposes his paragraphs — makes the majorityleft by the war in the country. The meetings alluded to by Colonel Brown, fixing rates and making pledges about renting lands to freedme the people of Virginia are in no wise responsible for it. Colonel Brown truly describes the conduct of the people of Virginia when he s law." This was the majority--not a "numerically small" class. Colonel Brown either speaks from prejudice, or he has not had the opportunity seeing the people and judging them fairly.
