or their deliverance, than elsewhere, though basking in the sunshine of favor. I said I was glad to be in Boston once more. I am—though Boston has, it is true, used me somewhat roughly, in days that are past. I am—for here I see once more the people. In England I have seen dukes, and marquises, and earls, and royalty itself, in all the hereditary splendor of an ancient monarchy, surrounded with luxury and pomp, and the people impoverished and oppressed to sustain it all; but here, in New England, one looks for such inequality in vain. Yet I have had no reason personally to speak ill of the nobility. I have to make grateful acknowledgment of much kindness and attention from them. But I want to see them invested in their own nobility alone. I want them to be the noblemen of nature. But here are the people! And oh, how would my heart leap if my thoughts might stop here. True, there are here no such institutions, civil or ecclesiastical, as there weigh heavily on the peopl

If not, I shall aim to take the steamer Acadia, for Boston via Halifax, 4th August. I am waiting, with all a husband's and a parent's anxiety, to hear from you.

that whatever is morally right for a man to do is morally right for a woman to do—was the chief cause of his violent revulsion of feeling towards his old associates. See his circular letter to English abolitionists in 1841 (Lib. 11: 74, 82). Charles Stuart's mind, as Mrs. Mott pithily recorded in her diary, was swallowed up in the littleness of putting down woman ( Life and Letters of J. And L. Mott, p. 157). and being thoroughly acquainted with the great body of abolitionists, that in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts the most uncompromising friends of liberty and of the slave were against the reception of lady delegates as recommended—a statement bearing the brand of New Organization veracity. George Thompson confessed he had deprecated the introduction of this question, and had anticipated it with dread, though he maintained the right of the American societies to send female delegates. He had himself invited some of them, but not intentionally as delegates. Having labored till th

society in putting down slavery. Great confusion followed this home-thrust, whereupon the Rev. Alexander Harvey, of Glasgow, rose and professed great respect for women—within their sphere. He thought, and conscientiously believed, that if he gave his vote for admitting females to vote and speak in such an assembly as the present, he should be acting in opposition to what he considered the word of God. Cheers and more confusion ensued. Another clergyman, the Rev. John Angell James, of Birmingham, thought the question prejudicial to the cause. It was new in England and unsettled in America, and involved far wider considerations than slavery. Imitating the facetiousness of the Rev. Mr. Burnet, he said that if the women yielded this point, it would be one more laurel in their Martyr Age. James G. Birney deprecated the impression that had been conveyed by George Thompson and some of the American speakers, that the question was settled in the United States. On the contrary, it ha

New Bedford, Sept. 1, 1840. Ms. Pardon me for again calling your attention to the Worcester Convention, and Springfield also. In my estimation, it is of great importance to the present interest of our cause, that you bring this convention prominently before the readers of the Liberator. You have the power of making the convention a large one, and it is a power, too, which no one possesses but yourself.
