@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.Title devised by cataloger.In this letter to William Lloyd Garrison, Joseph Phillips recalls sending Garrison "a set of Anti-Slavery Reporters with some other publications" in exchange for the Liberator and information "respecting that disgraceful conspiracy against the rights and liberties of free subjects in America called the [American] Colonization Society." Phillips reports that he, along with Capt[ain] Charles Stuart, "have done everything that lays in my power to neutralize Mr. Elliott Cresson's sophistry," including lecturing across England. He asks Garrison to send him "documentary evidence from America" to use in combatting the arguments of colonizationists, "especially all laws made against the free blacks & Colloured [sic] population of America." Phillips also presents Garrison with a fourth volume of Anti-Slavery Reporters and asks him to assist the bearer of the letter, Mr. William Biddle, "a Gentleman of Respectability."
