Anti-Slavery Societies Growing

Garrison writes to the President of the Anti-Slavery Convention, to be held in Providence, in February.  He congratulates the people of Rhode Island, and comments that Connecticut is the only New England state presently where there is no such Society, but notes the existence of other state societies.  He mentions those in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Ohio, and Kentucky.  (readinggarrisonsletters,  January 30, 1836)
