There is nothing better than being with a Black man and not having to explain your favorite movie and TV quotes—from Eddie King, Jr. Black men realize that being a strong Black woman is for survival and one part of our multidimensional personalities.

Carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders, they still manage to glide across the room. By Charreah Jackson Along with sexy smiles, Black men are cornering the market on juicy lips. We love a brother’s ability to infuse a few terms from around the way along with Webster’s finest after a long day.Also included are early family papers, speeches, military orders, farm reports, and other papers.Since Washington preserved drafts of his letters, and made letterbook copies of both outgoing and incoming correspondence, his letters often exist in multiple versions.Most document the Revolutionary War and include orderly books, including some captured from the British; interrogations of British deserters, lists of officers and provisions, court martial proceedings of Captain Richard Lippincott, diaries, copies of letters, and a few published volumes of military strategy. Series 7, Applications for Office, 1789-1796 Thirty-two volumes containing letters Washington received from job-seekers while he was president of the United States. 1775-1799 The items in Series 8 are not different in substance from manuscripts elsewhere in Washington’s papers.They were filed separately only because they arrived at the library separately from the bulk of Washington’s papers. 1732-1943 Washington material acquired since 1970, organized by date of acquisition, and items that were removed from the first eight series as extraneous.
