Another close colleague, and neighbor, James Haughton, had already written privately to Father Mathew in the same sense. The Apostle had refused to go to Worcester, Mass., and from Worcester, England, came the first municipal censure, uttered in the Guildhall, the mayor Lib. 19.171. in the chair, at another reception to William Wells Brown.

Then he feared that he might fail, and so injuriously affect the cause he wished to promote. But observe the change that has taken place within the last ten years! Who are among our ablest speakers?

The original abolitionists did not lack representatives in the army and navy forces for the suppression of slavery and the rebellion. Among those
