Death of Clarkson

October 23, 1846

The death of Clarkson is noted,  and records that Thompson had written, saying that Garrison did visit with Clarkson shorthly before his death.  Clarkson shared with Garrison his views as to the DISSOLUTION OF THE AMERICAN UNION.  Clarkson had put into Garrison’s hands a document by that name, as his legacy to the American people.  “His dying thoughts could not be limited by the country which gave him birth, but flew across the ocean to the land which is the arena of the conflict between Liberty and Slavery.”
