s acts of politeness and kindness; as also to Sheriff Sumner, The manly father of Charles Sumner. Mr. Coolidge, Mr. Andrews, and several other gentlemen. I have been thus minute in describing the rise, progress and termination of this disgraceful riot, in order to prevent (or rather to correct) false representations and exaggerated reports respecting it and myself. It is proper to subjoin a few reflections. 1. The outrage was perpetrated in Boston—the Cradle of Liberty—the city of Hancock and Adams—the headquarters of refinement, literature, intelligence, and religion! No comments can add to the infamy of this fact. 2. It was perpetrated in the open daylight of heaven, and was therefore most unblushing and daring in its features. 3. It was against the friends of human freedom—the liberty of speech—the right of association—and in support of the vilest slavery that ever cursed the world. 4. It was dastardly beyond precedent, as it was an assault of thousands up

placard intended to renew the scenes of October, 1833; in the last week, participating in the New England Anti-Slavery Convention in Boston, and, at the very close, holding in Julien Hall a debate Lnied Mr. and Mrs. D. L. Child despite the remonstrances of his friends, his first test of the New England temper after the signal had been given from Faneuil Hall proved how much it had changed for to preach in the latter year. He was settled till 1833 at West Newbury, Mass. He joined the New England A. S. Society in May, 1835, and first met Mr. Garrison on Nov. 6, 1835. See his Autobiographawyer to his informant, Ellis Ames (Mass. Hist. Soc. Proceedings, 18.343). The editor of the New England Galaxy overheard a justice of the peace remark: I hope they will catch him [Garrison] and tarve surpassed this invention for putting the mob in the wrong. The religious press, except the New England Spectator and Zion's Herald (Methodist), was in accord with the secular. The Christian Watch

akfast furnished by the kindness of my keeper, I inscribed upon the walls of my cell the following items: Wm. Lloyd Garrison was put into this cell on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 21, 1835, to save him from the violence of a respectable and influential mob, who sought to destroy him for preaching the abominable and dangerous doctrine, that all men are created equal, and that all oppression is odious in the sight of God. Hail, Columbia! Cheers for the Autocrat of Russia and the Sultan of Turkey! Reader, let this inscription remain till the last slave in this despotic land be loosed from his fetters. Leverett-Street jail was demolished in 1852. When peace within the bosom reigns, And conscience gives th' approving voice; Though bound the human form in chains, Yet can the soul aloud rejoice. 'Tis true, my footsteps are confined— I cannot range beyond this cell;— But what can circumscribe my mind? To chain the winds attempt as well! Confine me as a prisoner—but bind me no<

About eleven o'clock, one of Mrs. Southwick's daughters came down to our house, and gave me the startling information that my dear friend Thompson would leave the country in the course of an hour—that he was going to sail in a packet for St. John—and that he wished to see me New Brunswick. immediately. Of course, I went in all haste and with much trepidation; for the idea of separating from him—perhaps till the close of life—filled my soul with anguish. I found his wife in tears. . . . My heart swells with sorrow, my cheeks burn with indignation, when I think of the treatment which Thompson has received at the hands of the people of this country. If he were a murderer, or parricide, he could not be treated more shamefully than he has been. To think of his being in

y expressive of purity, animation, and gentleness. I did not now wonder at the citizen who, seeing a print of Garrison at a shop window without a name to it, went in and Cf. ante, 1.403. bought it, and framed it as the most saintlike of countenances. The end of the story is, that when the citizen found whose portrait he had been hanging up in his parlor, he took the print out of the frame and huddled it away. Garrison has a good deal of a Quaker air; and his speech is deliberate like a Quaker's, but gentle as a woman's. The only thing that I did not like was his excessive agitation when he came in, and his thanks to me for desiring to meet one so odious' as himself. I was, however, as I told him, nearly as odious as himself at that time; so it was fit that we should be acquainted. On mentioning afterward to his introducer my impression of something like a want of manliness in Garrison's agitation, he replied that I could not know what it was to be an object of insult and hatred

May. the Journal of Commerce, though that paper evidently gives a distorted account of the matter. The mobbing of the New York Starrived from New York. Glorious news! A letter in the Commercial Advertiser (Col. Stone's), written by a man not an abolitionist, says the Convention assembled at Utica; organized by appointing a chairman and enrolling six hundred members. A constitution was adopted for a State Society, Lib. 5.174, 175, 181, 190; May's Recollectcertainly deserves much credit for the Christian manliness and magnanimity which he manifests in joining our ranks at this perilous crisis. So much for the mob at Utica! W. L. Garrison to Mary Benson, at Providence. Brooklyn, November 27, 1835. Ms. Much as my mind is absorbed in the anti-slavery cause, there are other

o convince slaveholders, they must mean to instigate the North to Federal emancipation, against which the Legislature should protest. Finally, cotton and slavery were inseparable. For the other gubernatorial messages referred to above, see Lib. 5.205: Governor Lumpkin, of Georgia (Upon this subject [slavery] we can hear no arguments: our opinions are unalterably fixed); Governor Swain of North Carolina (the North should suppress abolitionism totally and promptly); and Governors Wolf, of Pennsylvania, and Vroom, of New Jersey, who deprecate agitation but deny that it can be legally repressed. and those of the other governors which accompany this. They form one complete picture. Amos A. Phelps to W. L. Garrison, at Brooklyn. Farmington, Conn., December 10, 1835. Ms. I regretted exceedingly that I did not find you in Boston the other day, on several accounts. . . . And first, in reference to Dr. Channing's book. You have doubtless seen it before this, and very likely have b

the sign that the North— that Boston—would not put her off with empty words. The vagabond Thompson, as the Boston Transcript Lib. 5.131, 132. called him—the wandering insurrectionist—first began after the Faneuil Hall meeting to experience the deadly hostility invoked against him there. From his peaceful labors in the Old Colony and its vicinity, at Lib. 5.2. the close of 1834, he had passed in January to Andover, where he had the ear of the theological and academical students; to Concord, Mass.; to various parts of Essex County, where the meeting-houses of Methodists, Baptists, Unitarians and Friends were opened to him. In the intervals of these excursions he spoke frequently in Boston. In February, accompanied by the Rev. Amos A. Phelps and by Henry Benson, he visited southern New Hampshire and Portland, Maine, still enjoying the hospitality of the churches and promoting new antislavery organizations. Thence he proceeded in the same month to New York, where he spoke for the

Henry and sister Anna will reach the city Anna Benson. probably on Monday evening next. Shall I come, or shall I not? I wish to be governed by your adviceto review Channing in the Quarterly Magazine. W. L. Garrison to Henry E. Benson, at Boston. Brooklyn, December 15, 1835. Ms. The bundle of papers, via Worcester, was safely conveyed and put into my hands on Friday evening, and great was my Dec. 11, surprise, as well as pleasure, to receive a copy of the Liberator. Dec. W. L. Garrison to S. J. May, at Boston. Brooklyn, December 26, 1835. Ms. As to-morrow is the Sabbath, I shall defer leaving for Boston until Monday, via Worcester. . . . I am happy to learn that there is a disposition, on the part of the abolition brethren, to place the Liberator, if possible, in a better condition than

England in the course of a fortnight—but this must be kept private. Mrs. T. is going to make a visit to her sister in Baltimore, and will follow her husband in the course of a month or two. . . . Thus we are to lose our eloquent and devoted brother-but he will still labor for us in England. Heaven's choicest blessings go with him and his! It will be almost like tearing myself in twain when he departs. . . . I have seen the Misses Weston, Sisters of Mrs. Maria Weston Chapman; a Weymouth (Mass.) family, daughters of Warren and Anne Bates Weston, of Pilgrim descent. Mrs. Chapman's services to Mr. Garrison were inestimable, her co-operation with him perfect; and on her, more than on any other woman, the conduct of the cause rested. She was baptized into it in 1834, became the soul of the Boston Female A. S. Society, and from 1840 her administrative energy maintained the organ of the American A. S. Society, and so virtually the Society itself. She was, in her Right and Wrong se
