Complaint by Garrison, about Daniel Webster

Feb 18, 1848,  Garrison complains that Webster, “who receives eight dollars a day, has scarecly given a vote in the Senate during the present session….. What to him are the signs and sufferings of three millions of his countrymen in slavery?  He sees and hears them with stolid apathy.  But he is prompt to bow down and worship the slaveholding Moloch on  the soil of Virginia, that he may receive the applause of the vilest of men. He has, in every exigency, basely betrayed the cause of liberty, and ought to be held in righteous abhorrence.”
