The day dawned grey, wet and chilly and the weather having sorted the sheep from the goats only a very select band turned up at Louis Tea Room at the appointed hour.


Soggy tale here.

It was a clever play, Lincoln having freed the slaves and all that.

Originally it was likely not meant with hostility. The general area is reputed to have had a safe house for the Underground Railroad and even before that local histories mention a few Blacks living in the area. "Mum Bet" a/k/a Elizabeth Freeman was an early Black slave in the same county who, in colonial times, succesfully sued for her freedom in a local court on the grounds that Massachusetts law didn't allow slavery.
