This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor. The freedmen are advised to remain quietly at their present homes and work for wages. They are informed that they will not be allowed to collect at military posts and that they will not be supported in idleness either there or elsewhere."""

Name Meaning

1 English (Kent): perhaps a variant of Treece .2 Altered spelling of German Treis, a topographic name for someone who lived by or owned an uncultivated piece of land used as pasture, from Middle Low German drīsch ‘fallow land’, or a habitational name from a place named with this word (in Hessian dialect treis), in Hesse or on the Mosel river. Alternatively, in some instances it may be from a short form of the personal name Andreas ( see Andrew ).
