Hughes gave a very interesting talk
on “Old Folks at Home” at the

He made a very eloquent plea for

means of their ceaseless toil wrested
the land out of its state of primeval

opportunity to acquire education and
culture in their young days because
life in those days was a continuos
struggle for existence.
