Mr. Thompson then went on toMr. Thompson then went on to give us a graphic, glowing account of the long and fierce conflict they had had in England for the siasts to thrill over American Anti-slavery.

hall quote shortly. The Abolitionists, of course, made a descent upon Emerson in their diocesan rounds — for they visited and proselytized everyone. May and Thompson, two of Garrison's lieutenants, called upon Emerson. Their mission was incomprehensible to Emerson, who writes in his journal: Our good friend, Samuel J. May, may instruct us in many things. He admired May but not Thompson, of whom he says: He belongs I fear to that great class of the Vanitystricken. An inordinate thirst for notice cannot be gratified until it has found in its gropings what is called a cause that men will bow to; tying himself fast to that, the small man is then at lib and, under that screen, if he gets a rotten egg or two, yet his name sounds through the world and he is praised and praised.

The slaand reference to committees, etc., the Alliance decided for the admission of slaveholders. Imagine the state of mind of Thompson and Garrison! They instantly called a meeting at Exeter Hall under the auspices of their own newborn League: and they plasses upon this whole matter were John Stuart Mill, John Bright, Richard Cobden, Lord Houghton, William E.
