@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.Title devised by cataloger.On verso, the letter is addressed to "William Lloyd Garrison. Esqr Boston America."Nathaniel Paul writes to William Lloyd Garrison apologizing for Garrison missing a parcel sent by Joseph Phillips but sending him a new parcel including English newspapers, the Patriot and the Advocate, which "both contain your communications." He tells Garrison that Elliott Cresson was "quite disturbed at your last publication & thinks it hard that he should be called an imposter &c." Paul calls Cresson "a most deceiving hypocrite but depend upon it he will be watched." He then discusses his travel plans and reports that Joseph Phillips has received 4 numbers of the Liberator along with other pamphlets intended for George Thompson. He also mentions that Prudence Crandall "has been prosecuted & committed to prison (so much the better)" and tells of a letter he wrote to Andrew T. Judson, advising Garrison to publish it "if you think proper". Paul says that Garrison's "visit [to England] will I think prove a blessing to the cause of Emancipation."
