“I was instructed by the Lord that the Southern field was to be given every advantage. Especially was Nashville to be worked: ... Years ago the Spirit of the Lord moved upon the hearts of men to establish in this city institutions of learning to educate the colored people of the South. The Lord now desires his people to establish institutions in this center where a good work has already been done.... I was instructed that memorials for God were to be established in this place, not only right in this city, but a little distance from it.”

July 3, 1903.

“A more decided interest should be manifested in the work of helping the colored people. If in the future we are to do nothing more for all colored people than we have done in the past, let us lay aside all pretense that we have entered Nashville for the purpose of helping them.... The Lord is not pleased with the present showing. Let there now be a reformation, and the Lord will work with those who are willing to co-operate with him.”

April 14, 1905.
