Editorial independence for Garrison

The Board of Managers of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society, in a record signed by Francis Jackson, President, Sept. 5, 1837, responds to concern by some that they did not agree with Garrison’s views on the Sabbath.  Garrison has responded, indicating that he allows all views to be expressed in the paper, including those who oppose his views.  The Board action resolves to leave “its editorial department entirely in the hands of William Lloyd Garrison”.
