What a wonderful journal! Yakoke to all who labored with love to bring to light unknown facets of freedmen history. I didn't know what to read first; decided on the Morris Impson interview. Then enjoyed reading the Dr. Saunt Chat Night dialogue. (Even today, I'm sorry I couldn't join in on that night.)
Was it usual for applicant's who used interpreters to be interviewed so "thoroughly"? Or should we assume because Morris' wife Lucy was a black-Choctaw who spoke only Choctaw?
I certainly plan to read all cover to cover. Not to trivialize the seriousness of what Morris and his family had to go through but his story could be the basis/beginning for a film about the over-all history of the Freedmen of the 5CT.
