My Dear Mr. Washington My ina
bility to attend tho mooting tomorrow
evening, in the interest of thoTuskcgoo
Institute, Is a very great disappoint
ment to mo. If my participation could
have iu tho slightest degree aided tho
cause you represent, or in tho least en
couraged you iu your noblo oHorts, I
would have felt that my highest duty
was in closo company with my great
est personal gratification.
It has frequently occurred to 1110
that iu the present condition of our free
Negro population in tho South and
tho incidents often surrounding them,
wo cannot absolutely calculato that
tho future- of our nation will bo free
from dinars and vcouvulslous, perhaps
not loss lamentablo than those which
resulted from the enslaved Negroes,
loss than 40 years ago. Then tho causo
of troublo was tho injustice of tho en
slavement of 4,000,000; but now wo
havo to deal with 8,000,000, who,
though froo, aud invested with all tho
rights of oitlzouship, still constituto in
tho body politic, a mass largoly atToct
ed with ignorance, slothfuluoss and a
resulting lack of appreciation of tho
obligations of citizenship.
I am so certain that thoso conditions
cannot bo neglected and so convinced
that tho mission marked out by tho
Tuskegeo Institute presents the best
hope for their amelioration and that
every consideration makes immediate
action important whether based uion
Christian benevolence, a love of coun
try, or Hellish material interests, that
I am profoundly impressed with the
necessity of such prompt aid to your
elTorts, as will best insure their suc
cess. I cannot bollovo that your appeal to
tho good people of our country will bo
unsuccessful. Such disinterested do
votiou HH you havo exhibited aud the
rosults already accomplished by your
unselfish work, ought to bo sulllcieut
guarantoo of tho far-reaching and ben
eficent rosults that must follow such a
manifestation of Christian charity and
good citizenship, as would be apparent
in a cordial and olfectivo support of
I need not say how gratified I am to
lio able to indicate to you that such
support is forthcoming. It will bo
soon by tho letters which I enclose
that already an oiler has been made,
through mo, by a benevolent lady in a
Western city to contribute $25,000
toward tho endowment fund upon con
dition that other suscriptions to this
fund aggregate the amount required.
With so good a beginning I cannot bo
llovo it possible that there will be a
failuro iu securing tho endowment
which Tuskegeo so much needs. Yours
very truly, (JROVER CLEVELAND.

In addition to this $25,000, Mr. and
