Wm Still's Underground Railroad Book presented by The Gist of Freedom 

 

AN UNDERGROUND RAILROAD REUNION - MEETING OF BLIND FATHER AND HIS SONS, 

 

Jackson found his poor old father here, The Underground Rail Road's Vigilance Committee. 

In Philadelphia, where he had resided for a number of years in a state of almost total blindness, and of course in much parental anxiety about his boys in chains. On the arrival of Jackson, his heart overflowed with joy and gratitude not easily described, as the old man had hardly been able to muster faith enough to believe that he should ever look with his dim eyes upon one of his sons in Freedom. After a day or two's tarrying, Jackson took his departure for 

safer and more healthful localities, her "British Majesty's possessions." The old man remained only to feel more keenly than ever, the pang of 

having sons still toiling in hopeless servitude.
