The Hutchinson’s Threatened with a Mob!

March 26, 1852

After notice was given of a pending concert, in Baltimore, an announcement was posted at Carroll Hall and various other places, including language like this:  “… it is a well-known fact that these noted abolitionists have figured conspicuously at the various abolition meetings at the North, in some instances opening the meeting by singing a song breathing fanatical sentiments .. will you encourage such concerts by those whose efforts are directed against an institution guaranteed by the Constitution, and who have sought to overthrow this glorious Union?
