Denying Desire to Colonize

 From a letter from Washington, dated April 28, published in the Anglo-African, we extract the following:

        “ I have received letters from New York and other points, making inquiries in relation to a memorial presented to Congress by Hon. Mr. Lane, of Indiana, purporting to come from colored citizens of the District, asking to be colonized in Central America. I am pleased to state that no such document has emanated from the people of this District…….We would like our friends everywhere to understand, that  every sensible man in the District is opposed to any such petition, from whatever quarter it may come; for this is our home, and here we will remain.”                      (Liberator, May 9, 1862, pg. 3)
