The result of the meeting was reported to the Lib-4 erator of March 16, by Henry E. Benson, in a letter to which Mr. Garrison gave the caption, ‘Heathenism Outdone,’ and prefixed a brief comment, saying: ‘We put the names of the principal disturbers in black letter— black as the infamy which will attach to them as long as there exists any recollection of the wrongs of the colored race. To colonize these shameless enemies of their species in some desert country would be a relief and blessing to society. This scandalous excitement is one of the genuine flowers of the colonization garden.’ The meeting, refusing to allow Messrs. May and Buffum to be heard on Miss Crandall's behalf, on the ground of their being foreigners and interlopers, voted unanimously5 their disapprobation of the school, and pledged the town to oppose it at all hazards.
