Title: Provincial Freeman - November 25, 1854

Speaker or author: S.

Newspaper or publication: Provincial Freeman (1853 - 1859)

The writer comments on the charitable efforts of Reverend Foote. He implies that by emphasizing the poverty of former slaves who are arriving in Canada and how helpful the missionaries have been by providing them with clothing, that these fugitives are now content and happy. He believes this type of reporting of the needs of fugitives is doing more harm than good.
