Thus it was with the disembodied Rogers
, or his impersonator, who, in the same month of September, 1851, sent another message of reconciliation through1 Oliver Johnson
by a boy medium near Waterloo, N. Y.
and who became from that time truly a familiar spirit to Mr. Garrison
—sometimes notably, and so consistently as to produce the pleasurable conviction that it was indeed Rogers
who, clothed and in his right mind, sought to atone for his hostile aberration, and to restore the joyous friendship of 1840.
