ut not until the following July did the patient present himself. July 17, 1848.

Ms. The trip in the cars to this place, yesterday, was much more pleasant than the one I took with Fanny, as the heat was much Helen Frances Garrison. less intense; but the dust and smoke were quite as disagreeable—so that I was not sorry when I arrived at the depot. There I met with our old friend David Lee Child, whom I had not seen for a long time, and the pleasure at meeting was mutual. There is to be a Free Soil Convention in this town next week; and to-morrow Mr. Child begi

This was an instructive experiment to Geo. Thompson. the Doctor, and he did not fail to profit by it. In 1853, having occasion to review the incident of his meeting with Dr. Channing at the State House (ante, 2: 96), Mr. Garrison wrote (Lib. 23: 154): When Dr. Channing took me by the hand, it was only an act of ordinary civility on his part, as he did not catch my name, and did not know me personally; and, therefore, meant nothing at all by it. No interchange of opinions took place between us on that occasion. If, afterward [as reported by Miss Martineau], on ascertaining distinctly who it was that

Wherever Abby Kelley lectured last winter, they followed the next week, and would often, notwithstanding all she could do, get more subscribers for their papers than she could for the Liberator. You, who know the Liberator, know that it requires a pretty full-grown man to relish its meat. Earlier in the same year, addressing the same correspondent, he wrote (Ms. April, 1844): As fast as we, the Old Organization, make abolitionists, the new converts run right into Liberty Party, and become almost or wholly hostile to us. This results from the strong leaning of our national character to politics. . . . It is disheartening to see that every blow we strike thus tells in a degree against ourselves, and yet duty bids us keep on striking. It was our agitation alone, continued Mr. Quincy, that kept the Third Party alive until it was merged in the Independent Democra

from the anti-slavery cause to the extent that her absence must necessarily require. With us, and many others, he regretted the step, and thought it an ill-advised one. To Mrs. Chapman herself Mr. Garrison wrote on the following day (Ms. July 19, 1848): How to feel resigned to your separation from our little antislavery band by a foreign residence of years, I scarcely know; but I know that the step has not been hastily taken on your part, and that there is not water enough in the Atlantic all with gratitude and admiration; but your position and influence have been preeminently valuable. . . . Accept my thanks, fervent but poor, for all that you have done. Mrs. Chapman sailed with her children and her sister Caroline Weston on July 19, 1848 (Lib. 18: 118). On Oct. 3, Edmund Quincy wrote to R. D. Webb (Ms.): You can hardly imagine what a difference the closing of Mrs. Chapman's house makes to me. Boston is a different place to me.

Their relation to it is of a totally different character from that they bore to the late Liberty Party, which was the antagonist and not the ally of the antislavery movement, and officered by deserters. The Free Soil movement sprang from an honest hatred of slavery, and it would be fed by the abolitionists—the first product of whose teachings was always political voters—as its predecessor had been. Wendell Phillips wrote to Elizabeth Pease in October, 1844 (Ms.): In three towns where I lectured summer before this, the Liberty Party vote trebled the next election; and though some thought I did not, on these occasions, labor as much on the point of the sin of that party as I ought, still, with us all, the result is something like this. Wherever Abby Kelley lectured last winter, they followed the next week, and would often, notwithstanding all she could do, get more subscribers for their papers than she could for the Liberator.

lity and sympathy which were lacking in Dr. Channing; and a colleague in the anti-slavery and other philanthropic causes; a preacher, too, whose discourses gave him moral and intellectual satisfaction, and of whose slender congregation he now virtually became a member, without theological profession or attachment. More intimately still, Apr. 20, 1848; Lib. 18.67. in April of this year, on the death of his loved infant, Elizabeth Pease, he naturally turned to Mr. Parker for ministrations of comfort which were gladly rendered at the funeral. No strange thing, he wrote to this Ms. clergyman on the morning of the fatal day, has happened unto us, in view of human mortality—nothing dark or mysterious; yet we feel our bereavement deeply and tenderly. The grief of the parents over this first inroad on their little flock was softened by the birth of another child— their last—on October 29, 1848. Him, for weighty reasons of friendship and of obligation, they named after Francis Jac

ong to see the day when the great issue with the Slave Power, of the immediate dissolution of the Union, will be made by all the free States, for then the conflict will be a short and decisive one, and liberty will triumph. The Free Soil movement inevitably leads to it, and hence I hail it as the beginning of the end. The new movement had had a somewhat rapid development. From Cincinnati, in May, had issued a call for a Lib. 18.82. People's Convention to be held at Columbus, Ohio, on June 21, to form a party based on opposition to slavery extension. Whigs, Democrats, and Liberty Party men mingled in the three thousand signers to the call. Mr. Garrison did not see in this combination and its object the moral display which its promoters alleged. Our gratification, he said, at this movement is found Lib. 18.82. only in the evidence that it gives, that the anti-slavery agitation is spreading among all classes at the North. As for the issue that is presented—free territ

ennsylvania, and Ohio, within a comparatively short period, where conscientious and upright persons have been thrust into prison for an act no more intrinsically heinous than that of gathering in a crop of hay, or selling moral or philanthropic publications. Allusion is here made to the case of Charles C. Burleigh, who in February, 1847, was twice put in jail in West Chester, Pa. (the second time for six days), for selling anti-slavery books on Sunday (Lib. 17.54, 59; Penn. Freeman, Mar. 25, 1847). For the conviction of a Seventh-Day Baptist farmer for working, in Pennsylvania, on Sunday, see Lib. 18: 119. There is, therefore, no liberty of conscience allowed to the people of this country, under the laws thereof, in regard to the observance of a Sabbath day. The last sentence originally read, . . . observance or non-observance of the first day of the week as a holy day. In addition to these startling facts, within the last five years a religious combination has been formed

). On Oct. 3, Edmund Quincy wrote to R. D. Webb (Ms.): You can hardly imagine what a difference the closing of Mrs. Chapman's house makes to me. Boston is a different place to me. Any of my own blood relations might go away and not make such a change. For I love not only the society of herself and her family, but in a great degree of all her sisters, too. But I have had the advantage of it for ten years, and that is a good slice of life. W. L. Garrison to his Wife. [Bensonville], July 23, 1848. Ms. Aside from the daily incidents which occur under the Sunday afternoon. WaterCure roof (and these are very slightly varied, and of no interest to any but the patients), there is nothing in all this region to stimulate the mind, excepting a contemplation of the beautiful and grand in Nature—nothing occurring worth putting on record.

Lib. 19.3; cf. 19.6. As the spring approached, it became more and more manifest that Mr. Garrison's system had not recovered from the effects of his Ohio fever. Not only rest but treatment seemed necessary, and both inclination and counsel—H. C. Wright's above all others'—prescribed Lib. 18.110; Ms. May 3, 1848, W. L. G. to E. Pease. for him the water-cure.

Benson had been a leading spirit, Ante, pp. 81, 83. and still his home, a hydropathic establishment had been instituted by David Ruggles, a colored man of remarkable strength of character, who had lost his sight in the Lib. 19.202. service of the Underground Railroad,—i. e., in sheltering fugitive slaves and speeding them on their way.
