@ Boston Public Library


Title devised by cataloger.The letter is addressed to "Mr. Wm. L. Garrison, Boston." and is postmarked "N.Y., October 12."In this typed copy of a letter to William Lloyd Garrison, Arthur Tappan describes a letter he received from a Charleston, South Carolina, "which stated that there had been much excitement there in consequence of the Liberator having my name written on them, being received there." Tappan asks how this happened and says that he "should probably have my ability to do good considerably diminished by the loss of my southern customers." He encourages Garrison to "be less violent in the manner of expressing yourself" but tells him that he believes the Liberator "is doing good, and I sincerely desire to see its usefulness increased."
