Rev. Thomas H. Jones was some years since introduced to me by clergymen in
whom I put great confidence, in terms of high commendation. I was interested in the
narrative of his life which he has published, and have since known him as an unusually
intelligent laborer among his colored brethren, and an earnest advocate of Republican and
Temperance principles.


New Bedford, Dec. 17, 1867.

NEW BEDFORD, October 20, 1869.

The bearer of this note, the Rev. Thomas H. Jones, I cordially recommend. My
intercourse with him during the last two years, has shown him to be a true laborer in the
cause of Jesus. He is a thorough temperance man, and is ready and anxious to labor. May
be have the cordial greeting of Christians wherever he may go, is the desire of

President of the Young Men's Christian Association.

HAVERHILL, Mass., May 14, 1878.

To whom it may concern:

This is to certify that I have known for a number of years the bearer, Rev. Thomas
Jones. As an upright, Christian man, he has always inspired my respect. I cheerfully
recommend him to any who may need his services.

Pastor of the First M. E. church.

BEVERLY FARMS, June 23, 1879.

My Dear Brother:

The bearer, Rev. Thomas H. Jones, I have met recently and conversed with, with
much pleasure. You will find him an intelligent, earnest Christian and temperance worker, I
have no doubt. His history and labors are very interesting. It gives me pleasure to introduce

Fraternally yours,


BEVERLY FARMS, May 16, 1879.

Dear Bro. Gorham:

I think I have already spoken to you or to some of your people favorably of Bro.
Thomas H. Jones, who has been spending a fortnight in our village and in Centreville. He
will now bear to you this note in person, as his introduction. He came to me well
recommended by Bro. Morgan, and from all I have seen of him, in our meetings and in
private intercourse, I feel free to indorse fully all Bro. M.'s ideas of the piety and intelligence
of the man. He has spoken several times in our chapel to large and deeply interested
audiences. He is poor, and will gratefully acknowledge any help you can render him in
disposing of his little book, or in securing a collection.

Very truly yours,


BOSTON, Mass., July 19, 1880.

To whom it may concern:

We are all one in Christ Jesus, and "God is no respecter of persons." Thirty years
have passed since the first testimonial was written in recommendation of the brother whose
experience is herein narrated, Rev. Thomas H. Jones. We can but say that we know that
during those years passed he has fully lived up to all that has been said in them, fulfilling all
the expectations of those who in those early years, when it was but to be stigmatized, so
willingly outstretched their hands to help and protect him. The sufferings in mind and body
endured by him should warm all hearts toward him, to lend him a helping hand. His recital
of the wrongs borne by him and his at the hands of his fellowman is most interesting and
affecting. No compensation in this world, given to him or to those who have suffered in like
manner, will ever repay them for their bitter
