Insight into Garrison, public personality

John Gulliver writes on Oct 10 to Garrison, complaining that in a previous paper Garrison had done him an “injustice in your strictures on my remarks at the Worcester Convention….”  He asks that Garrison publish a copy of those remarks into the paper…

The editor responds:  “Certainly your request shall be complied with, yet we shall be sorry to be compelled to make you publicly ridiculous in publishing your remarks. We have treated you tenderly, instead of unkindly, considering the virulence and personality of your attack.”
