In fact, from every part of Ohio and from several cities Of the adjoining States, there came letters in cordial appreciation of the critical recognition which it was my pleasure no less than my duty to offer Paul Dunbar's work in another place. It seemed to me a happy omen for him that so many people who had known him, or known of him, were glad of a stranger's good word and it was gratifying to see that at home he was esteemed for the things he had done rather than because as the son Of negro slaves he had done them. If a prophet is Often without honor in his own country, it surely is nothing against him when he has it. In this ease it deprived me of the glory of a discoverer but that is sometimes a barren joy, and I am always willing to forego it.
