New National Era, April 10, 1873

HON. F. D. WADE,
of Yazoo county. Mr. W. is a young man of about twenty-eight years of age; light-brown complexion; fine features, but his face rather deeply pitted with the marks of small-pox. He is of medium height, but rather slender in form. He wears his hat tipped on the side of his head; draws his shoulders up as far as he possibly can while walking; slings his feet diagonally, and manages every nerve in his body to form a complete dandy. He uses his tongue so nicely that one would think that it was soaking over night in sweet oil! He is, however, genial in temperament; and a warm admirer of ability and character. He came into the State in 1870; was elected to the Legislature in 1871, and represents one of the richest counties in the State.
