Table of Contents:
Tha exuberance of a brother's glowing love;
And never in my memory shall perish
Thy name or worth—so time shall truly prove!
4 The Boston Telegraph;
5 The Christian Soldier, Boston, printed on the Liberator press. These editors, again, were lawyers, ministers, and litterateurs. Oliver Johnson, who was four years younger than Mr. Garrison, was a native of Peacham, Vt., of Massachusetts parentage. He became an apprentice in the office of the Vermont Watchman, at Montpelier, where he read the Journal of the Times. Already, July 4, 1828, he had delivered in that town an address against slavery, from the colonization point of view. Like Mr. Garrison, he strove as early as possible to edit a paper of his own, and the first number of his Christian Soldier was issued in Boston within a week of the first number of the Liberator. It opposed the rising ‘heresy’ of Universalism.
6 Ms. Feb. 14, 1831.
