@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.Title devised by cataloger.On verso, the letter is addressed to "Messrs. Garrison & Knapp No 11. Merchants Hall Boston."Joseph Cassey writes to William Lloyd Garrison and Isaac Knapp "with much satisfaction" after seeing Arnold Buffum listed as the general agent for the Liberator in Pennsylvania in the last issue of the Liberator. Cassey says "you could not have made another choice that would have so generally satisfied the subscribers to the Liberator, and the friends of the cause, in general as in this neigbourhood [sic]." He believes that Joshua Coffin's work with the paper "has also been very constantly successful" and since his own period as agent is about to end, he has given Buffum "a list of all those subscribers that either continue to pay, or are expected to do so ..." Cassey then refers them to a letter he wrote to Isaac Knapp, dated May 1st, 1833, before listing subscribers' names along with the amount they have paid. He also repeats a request from Coffin to mail the Liberator to a number of new subscribers who have not yet received any issues.
