10 Ms. Dec. 14, 1844.
11 Mr. Hoar himself, in a letter on the Latimer case in 1842 (ante, p. 66), referred to the law of Louisiana ordering the arrest of any colored man entering the State from another State, and asked, why, then, might not every free State imprison every incoming native of a slaveholding State (Lib. 12: 177). He reached Charleston on Nov. 28, 1844; his colleague, Henry Hubbard of Pittsfield, Mass., delegated to Louisiana, arrived in New Orleans Dec. 1, and was likewise expelled, but less fiercely (Smith's “History of Pittsfield,” p. 405; and Lib. 15: 2, 9, 14, 17, 25). See the law enacted by the South Carolina Legislature to prevent the recurrence of like missions: ‘An Act to provide for the punishment of persons disturbing the peace of this State, in relation to slaves and free persons of color’ (Lib. 15: 14; 18: 65), and a similar one by Louisiana (Lib. 15: 17, 25).
