Tax Resistance and A. Bronson Alcott

January 27,  1843

An account of the arrest and attempted jailing of Alcott for failure to pay a tax. It is addressed to the Editor of the Liberator. The writer, “C. L.”, from Concord, concludes:  “Many are the points worthy of consideration involved in this uncouth, barbaric, unchristian state of the law; and I earnestly trust you will not allow the occasion to escape your enlightened and benevolent pen, nor fail to inform the pubic at large of the facts.”
