12) The town of Lincoln was laid out in 1853, and for more than a decade only white people lived there. 

13) The first Negroes were brought from the South by soldiers returning from the Civil War. 

14) They were carried into town rolled in a blanket so they would not be seen. 

15) They stayed indoors during the daytime and waited until dark for a breath of fresh air.

16) Muddy water doesn’t always clear overnight. In the running conversation that went on above my head, from time to time a voice no longer identifiable would say, “So long as they know their place.” 

17) A colored man who tried to attend the service at one of the Protestant churches was politely turned away at the door.

18) The men cleaned out stables and chicken houses, kept furnaces going in the wintertime, mowed lawns and raked leaves and did odd jobs. 

19) The women took in washing or cooked for some white family and from time to time carried home a bundle of clothes that had become shabby from wear or that the children of the family had outgrown. 

20) I have been told by someone of the older generation that on summer evenings they would sit on their porches and sing, and that the white people would drive their carriages down the street where these houses were in order to hear them.

21) I am aware that “blacks” is now the only acceptable form, but when I was a little boy the polite form was “colored people”; it was how they spoke of themselves.
