Meetings at Syracuse

October 6, 1854

This account tells of the meeting of the Liberty party, indicating that attendance was small, unenthusiastic, “proceedings not animated”, etc and then tells of subsequent meetings of the American Anti-Slavery Society, in the same city, which it claims to be well attended.  There is an account of animated discussion between Gerrit Smith and the Editor about whether to interpret the Constitution as an anti-slavery or pro-slavery .
