WERE LOYAL IN TENSE AND TRYING
TIMES, THIS VOLUME IS AFFECTIONATELY

DEDICATED

The National Association of Colored Women of

Through all the blight of slavery
They kept their womanhood ,
And now they march with heads erect ,
To fight for all things good ,
Nor care for scorn nor seek for praise ,
Just so they please their God .
