Bible so well, or could produce a text to fit a political emergency with such startling felicity as Garrison. Take for example, the text provided by him for Wendell Phillips's speech on the Sunday morning following Lincoln's call for troops in 1861. Therefore thus saith the Lord; Ye have not hearkened unto me in proclaiming liberto politics. ... It is disheartening to see that every blow we strike thus tells in a degree against ourselves, and yet duty bids us keep on striking. It is Wendell Phillips who in this passage is accurately describing the operation of a great law of influence, and who yet seems to see in it merely evidence of human perversity. wer of enjoyment which Garrison possessed he shared with all, or almost all, the Abolitionists; their work made them happy.

f opposition had been some ill-timed and senseless applause — or what seemed such. And as it came from one little portion of the audience, Dr. Furness asked Wendell Phillips at his side what it meant. It means, he said, that there is to be a row. The reference to the Catholic Church gave the first opening to the leader of the g Our demeanor made it impossible for the rioters to use any physical force against us. Rynders found himself in the midst of Francis and Edmund Jackson, of Wendell Phillips, of Edmund Quincy, of Charles F. Hovey, of William H.

a unity, despite the incessant tearing and crumbling that were the normal accompaniment of its spreading influence. I have never met the man or woman, said Wendell Phillips in 1865, who had struck any effectual blow at the slave system in this country, whose action was not born out of the heart and conscience of William Lloyd Garrison. There is a certain verbal exaggeration in Phillips' statement; but the idea conveyed is true. Garrison's preeminence is incontestable. In agitation, as elsewhere, the great man eats up the little man; he sets the clock in the little man's bosom by his own chronometer — or rather, all this is done for both of them by thenames of any of those men whom you most revere and love, without calling down the wildest demonstrations of popular enthusiasm. I never mentioned the names of Mr. Phillips or Mr. Garrison, that it did not call forth a storm of approbation. It was through all this intercourse between the Abolitionists and the liberals of Englan
