Garrison, Wm. Lloyd (ed.)

The Liberator: Our Country is the World- Our Countrymen Are All Mankind Vol. X No. 7

Boston, Massachusetts Friday, Februar 25 x 18", 25-28. Toned, ink name, scattered spotting, folded in half, fold creases, edge and fold tears, small holes else good condition. Articles include one on Dr. Beecher who "is understood to be a believer...of immediate emancipation...With slaveholders in his congregation...he has never, we believe, preached one sermon against slavery", "Captured Africans", "Colonization", "Awful Times in Jamaica", "Emigrants To Trinidad" in which the emigrants did not receive promised wages and were "treated little better than slaves". Bills passed in both the Kentucky and Missouri Senate repealing the act that prohibited the importing of slaves to the respective states. A bill introduced in Texas "to expel all free negroes from the country". A brief note entitled "Liberia" which "thirty-five colored emigrants" sailed to Liberia "under the direction of Jacob Gross, an intelligent colored man, who is vice agent for the colony". Plus, an account called "Slavery As It Is", which details the brutality of an overseer and by the slave owner towards the slaves on a plantation, a first person rendering. The masthead shows two images: a slave auction and emancipated slaves.
