God speed the progress of your society! may it soon find in its ranks the whole phalanx of sacred and veteran Abolitionists! No single divided effort, but a united one to grapple with the wealth, influence, and power embattled against you. Is it not Schiller who says, “Divide the thunder into single notes, and it becomes a lullaby for children; but pour it forth in one quick peal, and the royal sound shall shake the heavens” ? So may it be with you! and God grant that without waiting for the United States to be consistent, before our ears are dust, the jubilee of emancipated millions may reach us from Mexico to the Potomac, and from the Atlantic to the Rocky Mountains.

Yours truly and most affectionately, Wendell Phillips.
