Abolitionist lecturers refused admission to Fanueil Hall

Notices from the Boston Commercial Gazette, the New York Times, and the N.Y. Courier & Enquirer, all commend the action of the Mayor and Alderman of Boston, for unanimously refusing permission for Abolitionist lecturers to speak at Fanueil  Hall.

Here is part of what the Times says:  “ The old temple of liberty must not be desecrated by admitting within its walls , the made fanatics, who if unchecked, will trample our freedome into the dust.”
