Anthony Burns back in Boston, free

Reception of Anthony Burns

A large audience gathered at the Tremont Temple on Wednesday evening last, to welcome Anthony Burns back to Boston, a free man.   The Chair was occupied by Dea. Julius A. Palmer, and addresses were made by the Chairman, Rev. Mr. Grimes, and Rev. E. N. Kirk, and Mr. Burns gave an account of what had befallen him since the United States Government  hurled him back into Slavery, last June – in substance, what we have printed from the Tribune, in another place. We have no room for details.
