2 Speaking in the City Hall at Glasgow with reference to the underhand calumniation of himself and his associates, Mr. Garrison ‘solemnly declared, after an eighteen years anti-slavery experience in the United States of America, that he had seen nothing more wicked or malicious, more wanton and cruel, than he had beheld within the last three or four weeks emanating from the apologists of the Free Church and the Evangelical Alliance’ (Glasgow Argus, Oct. 29, 1846; and see, in the Argus for Oct. 15, Mr. Garrison's dissection of a hostile article in the Scottish Guardian. Further, for charges of infidelity by Dr. Campbell in his Christian Witness, see Lib. 17: 5, 21, 121; and by Dr. Cunningham, Lib. 17: 9). His clerical traducers never faced him in public.
3 A breakfast by invitation with George Combe, perhaps on Oct. 22, in company with Thompson, Douglass, and Buffum, was another pleasurable incident of this visit to Edinburgh ( “Life of Douglass,” ed. 1882, p. 245).
5 Ms. Nov. 15, 1846.
6 On December 11, 1846, Mr. Garrison wrote to Geo. W. Benson (Ms.): ‘The Garrisonian ranks are filling up. This morning, dear Helen presented me with a new-comer into this breathing world,—a daughter,—and the finest babe ever yet born in Boston!’ On Dec. 19 he informed S. J. May (Ms.) that the little girl had been named Elizabeth Pease. Wendell Phillips wrote to her namesake on Jan. 31, 1847 (Ms.): ‘Garrison's child is a nice, healthy, dark-eyed little thing, much like his other little one, Helen. I am glad he has called it E. P., for you will feel more fully than ever convinced that the best ones on your side the water do not love and value you more than the best one here does.’
