A letter to the Editor,  from  “W” makes a strong statement that the conditions of the working class merit a dedication to change as much as the condition of the slaves.  Garrison introduces the article with words which  discourage teaching “the poor and vulgar”  to “consider the opulent as their natural enemies”….he acknowledges that there “is an abuse of wealth as well as of talent, office  and emolument”  ….but denies “evidence that our wealthy citizens, as a  body, are hostile to the interests of the laboring classes”…..He concludes the introduction of the article with a plea that he has more to say on the matter, but is running out of space, and an appeal that wherever there is “public abuse”, there must be a speedy and judicious remedy
