Audience wants to hear Frederick Douglass...
Item # 621246
May 11, 1847
EVENING POST, New York, May 11, 1847 Page 2 has a report about a meeting of the American Anti-Slavery Society attended by a large audience "...drawn together by the fame of Fred. Douglass..." Says that Mr. Garrison "...rose to introduce Douglass, but it was evident he meant to make a speech of it....[and] he was put down by the...cry of Douglass! Douglass! Douglass began by denying an assertion of Garrison's that he loved this country. What patriotism could he have? He had no country. The institutions here, civil and religious, knew him only as a thing..." and a bit more.
Four pages, some damp staining, large folio size, good condition.
