Benjamin Lundy almost lynched in Texas

“Benjamin Lundy, that indefatigable friend of the colored man, informs us in his last number of the Genius of Universal Emancipation, that he was near being mobbed twice in his late tour of Texas, that the ‘tar and feathers’ were prepared and would have been applied  had not a Mexican officer been near and informed of the proceeding.  But fanaticism in favor of slavery is quite innocent.” (Liberator, April 30, 1836, pg 2)
