4 March 13, 1834, Mr. Garrison wrote to G. W. Benson: ‘Sickness prevented the Rev. Dr. Channing from being present at our meeting [of the New England A. S. Society in the Tremont Temple, March 10]; otherwise we should in all probability have had a speech from him. I understand he fully agrees with us on the great question of immediate emancipation.’ In July, Dr. Channing was accounting for the New York riots by the ‘fatal mistake’ of the abolition watchword ‘immediate.’ (See p. 531 of the centenary edition of his Life.) In the fall, Mr. May was still laboring with him to reconcile him to the word and the idea. (See pp. 170-185 of his “Recollections,” and pp. 528-536 of the Life just cited.)
