on. . . . To Disunion I now subscribe in the full expectation that a time is coming which may expose to obloquy and danger even the most insignificant of the adherents to such a cause. In the following spring, describing to his mother a series of meetings, Unitarian, Anti-Slavery, and Association, of which he had chiefly attended the Anti-Slavery ones, Higginson said:— The most interesting and moving speech of all I have heard this week was by an old colored woman, Mrs. Thompson of Bangor, at one of the AntiSlav-ery meetings in Faneuil Hall. This old lady rose among the crowd and began to speak—all stood up to gaze on her, but she undaunted fixed her eyes on the chairman and burst out into a most ardent, eloquent and beautiful tribute of gratitude from herself and her race to Garrison who came truly in a dark hour she said; her style was peculiar, tinctured strongly with methodistical expressions and scripture allusions, but her voice was clear and her language fluent and e

He sometimes lectured at Chautauqua which he called An innocent Saratoga. When he went forth on these expeditions to scream among his fellows, as an irreverent friend was fond of quoting from Bryant's Waterfowl, unforeseen difficulties sometimes arose. In such cases a happy versatility saved the day, as when in Bangor, in 1887:— Last night I had a good lecture, though I learned just as we went into the church door that the subject was different from what I had supposed, so that I had to switch my thoughts off very suddenly. In January, 1888, he meditated:— It is curious to see how my 64th birthday seems the turning-point for my reputation such as it is. I had a notice of nearly a column with a horrible portrait in a Detroit newspaper and a good many western letters referring to it in one w
