    [May 26, 1857]

    The Judge, as always, hard at work-& now busily attending to the planting of some seeds, & preparing for leaving here to attend the Episcopal Convention, now in session in Salisbury. I learned this intention from Bishop Atkinson, whom I traveled with yesterday from Charlotte to Salisbury. The bishop & I had much interesting conversation-part of it concerning the colonization of Liberia , & the alleged success of the emancipation of slaves, there colonized-about which, as might be expected, the bishop and I were of entirely different opinions. He is a very pleasant and agreeable gentleman.
