William and Ellen Craft escape

January 12, 1849

William Wells Brown writes to Garrison, telling of the escape of the Crafts, Ellen, 22, William, 24 years of age.  “They are now hid away, within 22 miles of Philadelphia, where they will remain until the 6th, when they will leave with me for New England.” Then Brown lists four days when he will lecture about the escape, in Norwich, Ct., in Worcester, Pawtucket, and New Bedford.
