Virginian. GOOD morning sir. AsI had some business in town this morning, I thought that I would call on you for the purpose of holding a Iittle conversation.

Minister. Sir, I am happy to see you; pray take a seat. Virginian. Sir, I have heard of you in the place of my residence, and having understood

that you have had a greater opportunity of acquiring information, than those of your colour generally have; and being informed at the same time, that you are a mere person professing the Christian religion; I thought it would afford me some degree of satisfaction to have an interview with you .
