Angelina Grimke, and Garrison on the law

In the October 8, 1836, Liberator, portions of Grimke’s Appeal to Chrisitan Women of the South, are printed.  Garrison comments, “She mentions four things which women can do:  You can read on this subject, You can pray over this subject. You can speak on this subject. You can act on this subject.”   The editor also agrees when Grimke calls upon the duty to break the law if it commands sin, and “that if it causes me to suffer, I will let it take its course unresistingly.”
