A Man who has freed slaves

October 14, 1853

Here is a letter from Thomas Garrett, of Wilmington, Delaware, who has sent three dollars to the paper.  Garrison indicates that Garrett is an old man and “that many a slave owes his freedom to his good offices”.   Garrison says that Mr. Garrett had his property taken from him and given to a slaveholder, to whose slaves he had given food and shelter. A letter from Garrett is included , in which he praises The Liberator for “causing alarm to the slaveholders of the South.”
