2 ‘Arthur Tappan is still firmly with us. He keeps very still respecting the American Union, but the impression is that he regrets the course he pursued in regard to it. He has given the American A. S. Society $1000 this month’ (Ms. New York, Feb. 25, 1835, Henry E. Benson to his brother George). On March 16, Mr. Garrison wrote from New York to his wife, of an Executive-Committee meeting on March 14: ‘Arthur Tappan was in the chair, and manifested a truly noble spirit. When the American Union caught him, “it caught a Tartar,” and it will be glad to get rid of him.’
7 Author of the well-known Latin Grammar and Lexicon. See his apologetic “Slavery and the Domestic Slave Trade in the United States: In a series of letters addressed to the Executive Committee of the American Union for the Relief and Improvement of the Colored Race” (Boston, 1836); and Lib. 6.38, where, under the caption, ‘A Pernicious Publication,’ Mr. Garrison banteringly reviews the book. Andrews's account of his interview with Arthur Tappan in New York shows how completely the American Union had lost its hold on the latter. Another unobjectionable publication was “Letters from the West Indies,” by Prof. Sylvester Hovey (Lib. 8.87).
