See, for Arthur Tappan, ante, p. 261, and particularly Lib. 3.55, where Mr. Tappan, after stating that the first thing which shook his confidence in the Society was the fact that ardent spirits were allowed to be sold at the colony (compare Niles' Register, 47.73), goes on to acknowledge the influence of the arguments of that most distinguished and fearless philanthropist, W. L. Garrison, in the Liberator, in convincing him of the single motive of the Society—to get rid of the free colored people. Immediately on receiving the Thoughts he wrote to the author (Ms. June 30. 1832): I have read your pamphlet with much satisfaction. . . .

such magistrates, as the tendency is to interrupt the harmony of the two countries, the libel assumes a still more criminal character. An extract from this charge was copied into the Liberator without comment from Mr. Garrison, who some time afterwards makes a single allusion to it as absurd and dangerous, and notices that it has been hailed with Lib. 2.119. joy by the whole tribe of Southern men-stealers and their insane apologists at the North. Such doctrines, exclaimed the Milledgeville (Ga.) Journal, will stand the test of all time. But Mr. Garrison did not underrate their value: they were obsolete as soon as uttered. Protests were raised against the charge in the Boston Com- Lib. 2.69. mercial Gazette, and, after its appearance in full in the quarterly American Jurist, in the newly-founded Boston Atlas; the former writer pointing out that if a mere tendency, apart from intent, was sufficient to make a misdemeanor, the same doctrine was applicable to the tariff disc

Of that adjourned meeting, says Mr. Johnson, my recollections are very vivid. A fierce northeast storm, combining snow, rain and hail in about equal proportions, was raging, and the streets were full of slush. They were dark, too, for the city of Boston in those days was very economical of light on Nigger hill. The north side of Beacon Hill, and the colored settlement of Boston par excellence. It almost seemed as if Nature was frowning upon the new effort to abolish slavery. But the spirits of the little company rose superior to all external circumstances. Mr. Child presided, and the preamble, as drawn by Mr. Snelling, was read as follows: We, the undersigned, hold that every person, of full age Lib. 2.25. and same mind, has a right to immediate freedom from personal bondage of wh

Mr. Garrison had also his word for Mr. Bacon (Lib. 3: 201): No writer in the United States, no slaveholder in the South, has uttered or published more excusatory, corrupt, and blasphemous sentiments as regards slavery than this individual. Citations follow. Clarkson, now almost blind, was reported to have listened with Lib. 2.23. enthusiastic delight to the details of the Society's operations as related by Elliott Cresson, its Quaker travelling agent in England. In April, a memorial purporting to come from its British membership, and supported and forwarded by the same Cresson, asking national aid for the Society, was presented in the House of Lib. 2.59; Niles Register, 42.97, 98.

Such phrases as these—the madman Garrisresence, a lawyer of the highest standing, and one of the pillars of the Colonization Society in Maine. He had been induced to listen to Mr. Garrison's discourse on the subject from the Rev. Dr. Nicf the College, the Rev. Jeremiah Chaplin, Formerly of Danvers, Mass. (See vol. VIII. Coll. Maine Hist.

Some of these, like the Ibid., p. 9. Richmond (Va.) resolutions of January, and the Philadelphia resolutions of January and August, 1817 (with James Forten in the chair), were the earliest possible remonstrances against the professed objects of the Society; the rest, from all parts of the country, had been printed in the Liberator, which was naturally charged with creating the adverse sentiments for which in fact it merely served as a mouthpiece.

Mr. Garrison took the initiative, by describing what the Abolitionists of Great Britain had done, since, under the inspiration of Elizabeth Heyrick, they had put their movement on the ground of immediate, in distinction from gradual, emancipation. He wanted societies formed in America upon the same principle, and could not be s the people of color are active and inveterate. His notions of justice and pleas of expediency are utterly abhorrent to our moral sense. He persisted in saying that the condition of the slaves was better than that of the laboring classes in Great Britain!!— an assertion which makes his own countrymen a servile and brutish race, and which any man who knows the difference between black and white should blush to advance.

He made a second anti-slavery visit to England in April, 1843, when a clerical fellow-passenger described him as an Old Hickory Quaker Abolitionist, a tall, gray-headed, goldspectacled patriarch ( Life of Dr. Wm.
