Garrison praises old friend, John Greenleaf Whittier

A copy of Whittier’s poems, published by Mussey & Co, 1850, has come to Garrison.  “Whittier needs no man’s commendation; his reputation is established; his genius stands confessed on both sides of the Atlantic.  He is not only a distinguished American poet, but there have been few poets in any age to compare with him.”
