Niles Weekly Register, Vol. 49. Oct 3, 1835, p. 72. “The Colored People of Baltimore.”

The following affecting reply of the very respectable colored clergymen, whose names are attached, on behalf of the people of their respective congregations and others – we sincerely believe is “just and true” in all its parts.

JOHN FORTIE,
minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Sharp street.

NATHANIEL PECK,
minister of the Bethel Methodist Episcopal Church.

WILLIAM LEVINGTON
rector of St. James P. E. church, Baltimore.
