Haiti may be a poor
country but it has one na-
tural resource that surpass-
ies that of almost any bther
land... BEAUTY. The pic-
.turesque variety of its land-'
scape, the brilliant colour of
its tropical foliage provide
Sa major' incentive to its
Tourist trade as well as a
':source of constant esthetic
appreciation to its local resi-
t. The winding road from
1. Port-au-Prince to Petion-
Sville is one of the most
'. bea giful route in the
World, especially breathtak-
Sing during the flamboyance
S'-.'season. 'Many a visitor has:

Foreign Negro AutOidrs

S Continued frow Page 6)

My dear Mother, I am
1 pleased that you are proud
of the book and me. You
know my dear, that I swore
S a very long time ago when
SI was no more than- a boy
that I wanted to prove to
the world that any person,
coloured or black, was as
Good as anybody else in the
world. I thought that was
More important than become
Sing rich and making money.
I thought I would serve my
people by doing so. I want-
ed to do something that
E' -would make my people feel
proud and raise.their heads.
I And I wanted to show the
rest of the v;orld what a
Sion-Europeans could do if
,. they gave him half a fair
chance. .
4 I have kept that promise
I made a long time ago. My
Books are read in nearly all
of the countries of the
. -world. And whenever any-
| body comes to Europe and
-. tells the people that the
" non-Europeans are lazy and
|" drunkards and thieves, the
People here say, "Well,
S-what about Peter Abra--
I hams?'"
i?, And my books are also
Selling the people of the
rest of the world what
Things are like in South
Africa. And I tell the
Struth, my dear, the good as
S-well as the bad so that
Sthe rest of the,world can see
S-us as we really are; our
Faults as well as our virtues.
SIt is good for people to
I know us as we are. For
r then they will understand
us. And once they under
*. and us, they will under'
stand our difficulties too,
" and' help us when we try
tq get a fair deal for our-
SaUnderneath we are all
Human. Black or white or
brown or yellow, we are all
S-human and should be treat-
Sed with the same justice.
Once we all understand
that, life. would be so much
Easier and happier for all
the people in our country.
SI am doing my best in help-
ing all people see that. It
is fof this reason that I am
Pleased that you are proud.
I want my people to raise
their heads and be proud.
SAnd 'now it will be easier
for another boy or girl who
comes after me to become
respect in the world as a
Writer or musician or an ar-
tist. The first time is al-
ways the hardest. I have
broken theJce. Now it will
be easier for others to
show just how good we can
be if he had half a chance.
And we must make those

chances! In the end it will
be hard ; to look down on
non-Europeans. As you can
see from their newspapers
the Europeans at home do
not look down on me. We
must try and .make it so for
all non-Europeans.
"It is not, easy and vwe
will have to work hard for
it. I have; -and my great
dream is to help m'y people
do so, too. Then our chil-
dren will grow up happy
and free and without fear.
"Perhaps this will make
you see, why I left home.
Now you will perhaps for-
give many things that must
hav4 hurt'you at ,one time.
Someone had to make a
start. I was lucky and now
I am happy as well.,
In England the young wri
ter had begun to sense what
he called ,the danger of as-
similationn with English
writers who received him so
graciously. 4I eased my-
self out of that warm, friend
Sy. society. I had battles to
fight. .Not a narrow racial-
ist battle, but a battle on
behalf of the dignity of all
men'. And the Negroes,
my people, today symbolize
the outraged dignity of all
men everywhere.", ,
Abrahams is now ..riitiug
what he calls a social auto-
biography of his childhood.
Married 'to lan Englishwo-
man and father of' two chil-
dren he has no desire to live
permanently in Europe, fnor
is he ready to return to his
native South Africa. In the
eyes of his native country
he and his wife have com-
mitted a crime by marrying.

Hataieu Brothers Write
About Creole Culture
The Marcelin brothers.
members of a, well-to-do
Haitian family whose pre-
decessors were diplomats,
have never felt the disad-
vantages of their Negro
blood. Returning from edu-
cation and travel abroad,
the young men studied the
lives of the pAmilive Creole
and his culture. Because,
they have dealt so ruthless-
ly with their country's igno-
rance and superstition, they
have been, criticized" for col-
.lecting exceptional cases
and exploiting them for
dramatic effect. Neverthe-
less, during the last ten
years the most produc-
tive period of Pierre and
Philippe-Thoby Mfarcelin-
'the unusually artful story-


tellers have won a series of
literary awards and have
awakened the world to the
charm of Haiti.
The brothers are mem-
bers of ,an illustrious, well-
to-do Haitian family who
were high in government as
well as 'men of letters. Phi-
lippe was one of the found-
ers of a Literary magazine,
Le Revue Indigene, in 1927,
which became the rallying
point for ,a Haitian literary
renaissance. In those days
Philippe was mainly a poet
and newspaperman. Later
he turned to novels with
his brother. They are now
:living in Washington, D.C.
in a well-known inter-ra-
cial apartment house. Aloof
and conservative, they speak
only a little English, insist:
"We are not indifferent to
racial problems but we
don't write about them be-
cause we think one cannot
divorce the problem from

Richer Is Least
By far the least race-con-
scious and most unconven-
tional of foreign Negro
writers is the unpredictable
Clement Richer. Because
the Germans recognized all
Martiniquans as Aryans,
Richer who lived in Paris
during the Geiman" occupa-
tion, was considered an
Aryan, despite his unques-
tioned' N6gro ancestry.
But n6t as a consequence
of this, i, is true that Rich-

The most curious feature
of his' books are animals,
trees and oceans that talk.
And' strangely enough there
is generally no love interest
in his books, perhaps be-
cause his first loves, his mo-
ther and his Great Dane,
Claud Arco Van Hoog-
'land, both starved to
death in France during the
otripation. He n4w has a
cat named (Gilbert,, who
means more to him than
men whom he dislikes.
Because of his passionate
l1ve 'for women, especially
blondes, Richer intends to
avoid America. He is afraid
he would ado violence,, to
anyone who objected to his
attempt "to pith up a lady
of his choice., In Paris, un-
der an unusually amicable
agreement, Richer shares
his apartment with two
pretty blondes. He calls
.them his "governesses." He
does not believe in mar
riage, he says.
