Clara Barton to Frederick Douglass at City Hall [January 18, 1881]

Clara Barton to FD_Jan 1881 _ 1

Thanks, friend, for kind wishes, kind thoughts and kind words. They smooth the rough places and lighten the shade. And teach tho’ life’s journey seem useless and dreary, it’s struggles for naught to the soul sick and weary. That perhaps in some nook of God’s world, it has “paid.” And so after all it were well that t’were made.

Always sincerely you[r] friend

Clara Barton
