“One dear woman that I met last fall at the Saturday night holiness meeting, told me she was converted at that meeting: also her husband and two children. She told me how she disliked me because I was a colored woman: how she went to church full of prejudice, but when God saved her He took it all out, and now she loves me as a sister and thinks I have a beautiful color! Of course I call that a good conversation to begin with. Some people don’t get enough of the blessing to take prejudice out of them, even after they are sanctified.”
