William Lloyd Garrison letter
Description: Fragment (Page 5) of a letter from William Lloyd Garrison to an unknown person. This portion of the letter appears to be praising a female abolitionist on the occasion of her eulogy. This comes from the collection of Benjamin Lundy (1789-1839), 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.
