Description

Alex Crummell wishes to support Dunbar's endeavor but warns candidly but privately of the existence of local and wicked prejudices that may bar his success. Crummell also asks for a volume of poetry and offers to pay for it, but he also offers an exchange for his latest work, Africa and America.
