2 American Conflict, 1.115.
3 William Ladd, a native of Exeter, N. H. (1778), graduate of Harvard College (1797), and for a number of years a sea-captain, devoted himself during the last eighteen years of his life (1823-1841) to the advocacy of the Peace cause, and was largely instrumental in establishing the American Peace Society in 1828. See his Memoir by John Hemmenway, Boston, 1872, and Mrs. Child's “Letters from New York,” 1st series, p. 212. Mr. Garrison addressed a sonnet to this ‘great advocate’ (Lib. 1.39), but more intimate acquaintance led to the judgment, ‘He is a good-natured man, but somewhat superficial’ (Ms., spring of 1833, to Henry E. Benson).
