1 The absence of H. C. Wright in England was one of the causes of the lapse of the Non-Resistant; but chief was the fact that ‘our time, our means, our labors are so absorbed in seeking the emancipation of our enslaved countrymen, that we cannot do as much specifically and directly for non-resistance as it would otherwise be in our power to perform’ (Ms. Mar. 1, 1843, W. L. G. to H. C. Wright). ‘The A. S. cause misses you much—even more than the N. R. cause (as far as they are separable). But I never could separate N. R. from my idea of reform generally. It is the temper of mind in which all enterprises for humanity should be undertaken, rather than a distinct enterprise of itself’ (Ms. Mar. 31, 1843, M. W. Chapman to H. C. Wright). ‘The [Non-Resistance] Society, I regret to say, has had only a nominal existence during the past year—and, indeed, ever since your departure. It is without an organ, without funds, without agents, without publications’ (Ms. Oct. 1, 1844, W. L. G. to H. C. Wright).
