a young lady had hoped that I would never become an Abolitionist, and about the same time Frederick Douglass appeared as a runaway slave. He was at the meeting in Marlboroa Chapel. Of course I was terally jumped in medias res. But I did not hear until years afterwards, and a long time after Douglass had held office in Washington under Federal Government, and the slavery of his own race had bee, when an assemblage of anti-slavery veterans and hosts of young colored men were honoring Frederick Douglass in a public hall in Boston, he alluded to this incident with the remark, Dr. Bowditch I gr— that it measures the separation of Massachusetts from the ordinary standards of Europe.

I am happy, said Douglass, to Douglass, to have the assent of my half-brother here, pointing to Rynders, and convulsing the audience with laughter. Afte to interrupt the speaker.
