Andover Students hear Gurley re. colonization

“Brother Garrison … We were favored with an opportunity on the 23rd, of listening to Mr. Gurley, the champion of colonization.  The trumpets which sounded before him, announced him as a man of sound logic and captivating eloquence.  But after hearing his address, we are compelled to say, that his eloquence was windy, and his arguments sophistical …If Mr. Gurley supposed that the enlightened citizens of Andover would admit his unsupported assertions, he must have entertained not the most exalted opinion of their intelligence …”  (Liberator, July 18, 1835, pg1)
