Pan-American Notes [excerpt]

     The colored men of Buffalo are in raptures over Parker, the negro whose strong arm prevented the assassin from firing a third bullet into the body of the president. Parker himself modestly states that he is a full-blooded due for his part in Friday’s affair belongs to the negro race [sic]. An incident in the man’s life as related by his friend, Attorney J. A. Ross of Buffalo, is worth repeating. Parker’s mother, when she writes to him, always adds the postscript, “I’m praying for you, Jim.” When Parker answered the letter received after the shooting he put this postscript on, “Keep on praying, Mother.”
