“Lawyer Whipper was one of the best criminal lawyers in the state* He
was a Negro* The Republican party had the state then and the Negroes were
strong* Robert Small was a noted politician and was elected to go to
Congress twice* The last time he ran, he was elected but had a hard fight*
The election was so close it was contested but Staall won out* He was the
last nigger congressman* I heard that there were one or two more, but I
don’t remember them*
