Douglass dined in Anacostia w/ 1st Register of Copyrights, his neighbor

T_Solberg -- LOC“I have frequently met Mr. Solberg in Washington and through him I made the acquaintance of Frances Hodgson Burnett, author of “That Lass o’ Lowrie’s”, and also of the famous negro orator and diplomat, Frederick Douglass.

With Solberg I had the honor of taking dinner both with Mrs. Burnett and with Fred Douglass; with the latter at his home in Anacostia, where Solberg then lived.”
