Charles H. Adams letter to Anna Pemberton, April 18, 1904
Description: Short note from a librarian, archivist, historian or records administrator Charles H. Adams, stationed at the Adams Building in Boston, Massachusetts, in response to an inquiry from Ms. Anna Pemberton -- working on a "Life" (or biography) of Benjamin Lundy -- as to whether the collection contains correspondence between Lundy and John Quincy Adams. Charles Adams responds to Pemberton, informing her that an investigation has been undertaken, and, 33 letters are available for her research between Lundy and John Quincy Adams. Benjamin Lundy (1789-1839) was a prominent Quaker abolitionist best known for his development of abolitionist periodicals. His Genius of Universal Emancipation was first published in 1821 from his home in Mt. Pleasant, Ohio, and enjoyed a wide circulation across the antebellum United States. In the 1820s, the young William Lloyd Garrison came to work for The Genius. Benjamin Lundy traveled widely seeking subscriptions to The Genius, giving talks about the anti-slavery movement, and observing and documenting the conditions of enslaved people across the Americas. He was also involved in the establishment of freed slave colonies in Mexico. View on Ohio Memory.
