To Those in Charge of the Colored Orphanage Enterprise

Extracts from the Writings of Mrs. E. G. White, on the Institutions for Colored People at Nashville and Huntsville, with particular Reference to The Huntsville Orphanage

From letter of January 4, 1905: PH163 3.1

“Special efforts must be made just now to help the colored people. The sanitarium that has been established in Nashville for the colored people must be provided with better facilities, and those who are making efforts to build at Huntsville an orphanage for colored children, must have help.” PH163 3.2

From letter of July 19, 1905: PH163 3.3

“Over and over again light has been given that a special work is to be done also in Huntsville. Men who are rooted and grounded in the truth in all its bearings are to be placed in charge of the work. A beginning has been made on an orphanage for colored children, but this work stands unfinished. On the beautiful farm of over three hundred acres, God proposes that an efficient missionary training-school shall be conducted, which will develop many workers for the colored people. PH163 3.4

A small sanitarium should also be established in connection with the school. The sanitarium building should not be of a shoddy character, neither should it be narrow and contracted. It should be built substantially, and there should be in it a room for the physician and nurses to carry forward the work of healing the sick, and giving patients and students an education in regard to the right principles of living.” PH163 4.1
