Fort Wayne Weekly Breeze (Newspaper) - January 19, 2012, Fort Wayne, Indiana M o the editor a i thought Nebbe you would like to hear about our anti scan alous society land so i m a Goin to write you a Short count of our last meeting. We met about 2 o clock of a wednesday afternoon at sister Sawtell a. After we had Tuk Olf our bonnets an a at Down an talked about the weather a few minutes sister Deacon Buzbee she s the presiden Tess she rapped onto the table with her thimble an a ays Quot this Here meeting will now come to order quicker n seat. An the Fust thing on the program is for the sectarian to read the we All hustled round and come to order an sister Goodall read the minutes but they might better have been called hours from the time it Tuk her to read pm. But she got pm read at last and then Slater Deacon Buzbee flays Quot before we perched to any futher business j will Esplain the objects of this Here society seen there is some new members come in that Ain t never been Here before. We Hev got two objects Quot one of pm is to sew and an make up different articles of All sorts like fancy spurns lamp Mats pin Cushing and Sich to sell an the Money to be gave to help s port the preacher. The Money has to be got Riz somehow fur the preacher s wife has been Grum Blin right smart of late to the Deacon because they Don t get enough scullery to keep Mem in vittles and close. Quot most they do get is donations an the things donated is not according to their needs. Fur instants she says they could have got Amonjr a spell yet without a Chany shepherdess to set on the parlor mantel. An they wan t a Chilly suffer in fur a pair o bleached Domestic Piller Shams with lace Borders onto pm. But though she said a he could use the Piller Shams to make Little Tommy a Petticoat and the lace would do to go round Amelia Alice s sunday spurn. A a when folks did donate vittles she said a mess of dried Beans or potatoes would be More except Ible than eighteen Apple pies an a dish pan full of Flitters. She had t nothing to say agin the pies an the Flitters they was Good latin fur once n a while but fur a real Tiddy diet she did t think Tivey was so healthy As some other , a besides they was Apt to Colick the children. An so As i was a say Inone of the objects of this Meetin is to sew things an sell pm an raise some Money fur the preacher s family. It s got to be Riz somehow the Deacon states fur it Stan s to reason that a family of two grown uppers an nine children can t a live altogether on Chany Shepher Desses an Piller Shams an Flitters an Sich. Quot an the other object is to prevent the spreading of scandal. No buddy belonging to this society is All owed to Tell a can alous Story to the detergent of their neighbors or no buddy a ise.

Cotton Crick Misoury. Me i a few f Coin a ii. A fru in Pic by. Leprosy in Louisiana. Or. Kly and tie priest lodged in the House of one of the Ujj Tita Fiott tents. In the evening when we were alone the subject of leprosy came up. Quot we hear at the North Quot said or. Kly Quot vague accounts of the Terre Des , which is said to be somewhere in 1 Louisiana. What truth is there in them ? Quot they Are no Doubr greatly exaggerated Quot said l Ather Nadaud. Quot a spurious leprosy elephantiasis was so common among the negroes under the Spanish domination that governor Miro founded a Hospital for lepers near new Orleans on the Bayou st. John. It has been go in these Many years and lepers land is now built up with pretty houses. It was in the suburb a the disease is ext Init. Then Quot Quot there we me some cases of genuine Static leprosy near Abbeville in this Parish about Twenty years ago. An old Creole lady was the first. Her father doubtless brought the terrible taint in his blood from France. When the White Scales appeared in her face her husband and family fled from her. There was a Young girl daughter of m Sieu Dubois who wont to her and nursed her alone during the three years in which she fought with death. An outlier of god s servants m Sieu four of this old woman s children who deserted her became lepers. The Young girl who had nursed her after she died married a Young Jei Mier and lived happily in her Little Cabin with her husband and pretty baby. But one Day a shining White spot appeared on her forehead. That the Quot she died Quot Quot a Sieu after four years. There is no cure. It surely does not matter to her now by what Road void called her to him. There have been since then no lepers in this Parish except in these tainted families. The real Terre Dea la prefix in Louisiana is now on the lower Lafourche below Harang s canal. The Bayou there is turbid and foul it flows through Valarious swamps lower than itself. The Creole planters there Are honest and temperate Folk but they Are wretchedly poor they raise Only Rice and live on it and fish. The wet Rice Fields come up to the very doors of their Cabins. The leprosy which certain families among them have inherited is developed by these conditions. Five years ago professor Joseph Jones president of the state Board of health went himself with his son to explore the Cypress swamps and lagoons of the lower 1 Lafourche. M Sieu it is the Region of tiie Shadow of death. He found Many poor lepers hiding there. They were As dead men who walk and talk. They could handle burning coals they Felt no longer cold nor heat nor pain. Their bodies were As corpses. One Man lived alone in a hut thatched with palme toes which he had built for himself eating Only the Rice which he had planted. No Man nor woman had come near him for years. The Terre Des i e Rex extends As far As Cheniere Caminada where the Bayou empties into the or. Ely remained silent though a torrent of angry queries rushed to his lips. Why was nothing done to mitigate the horrors of such a life in death How could this priest a Man of god so calmly discuss these poor accursed creatures from his Safe comfortable Point of Vantage jogging on his easygoing Mare from one farm to another ? to bade him presently a rather Curt Good night and went to the loft where he was to sleep. When he came Down in the morning Pere Nadaud had gone. Quot a Sieu Quot said his smiling Host Quot to Pere Haf let you Bon Matin Quot waving his hand to the Black figure passing southward far across the Prairie. Quot where is his charge now Quot Quot a Sieux Quot Gaspard paused a moment. Quot in hell i think. It is near Cheniere Caminada in la Terre Des or. Ely walked away from him and paced up and Down the levee for a Long time. Quot god forgive me Quot he muttered to Ca Harding Davis in Harper s Magazine. A onion t be locked out. Before 10 judge b.
