THE

By

Miller,
M.D.,
Superintendent

Hospital,
Goldsboro,

C.
From
the
Afro-American
Encyclopedia,
I
gather
the
following
statistics:
"African
population
of
the
United
States,
--
-
7,470,040.
Of
this
number,
there
are
pure
Africans,
-
-
-
6,337,980.
Of
mulattoes
(one-half
pure)
956,989.
Of
quadroons
(one-fourthpure)
105,135.
Of
octaroons
(one-eighth
pure)
69,936."
In
round
numbers,
six
millions
livein
the
South.
I
observe
that
the
States
of
Louisiana,
Mississippi
andSouth
Carolina
have
more
negroes
than
whites.
The
literature
of
insanity
and
physical
degeneration
among
this
popula-
tion
thus
far
is
comparatively
meagre
;
and
it
will
devolve
upon
us
of
the
South
who
are
in
the
midst
of
these
people',
to
write
it.
This
writer
has
beenthoroughly
reconstructed
and
readjusted
to
the
changed
political
relations
of
the
negro.
He
has
no
controversy
with
man,
nor
complaint
against
the
great
Disposer
of
human
events
for
the
resultsof
the
late
war
between
the
States.
Nor
has
he
any
prejudice
against
the
man-
umitted
slave
or
his
posterity.
In
common
with
the
great
mass
of
Southern
people,
he
is
the
negroe's
friend.
