Anti-Slavery Reminiscences

January 30, 1852

A long letter from Henry W. Wright, written Jan 17, 1852, from Michigan, to Richard D. Webb, Dublin, Ireland.  Wright sends excerpts from the Genius of Emancipation, about Garrison, sometimes by Lundy, giving accounts of Garrison’s early crusade against Colonization, then recounting the beginning of the Liberator.   Because Webb has shown interest in the anti-slavery movement in the United States, and in Garrison, Wright
believes these “few items, touching his (Garrison’s) first consecration of himself to the abolition of American slavery, will be of interest to you as well as to others.”
