Fairness of the Liberator, from Henry Ward Beecher

(Liberator, January 7, 1853)  The editor recognizes a new subscription, from Henry Ward Beecher.  Beecher writes that he wants the paper, in part, “because it is one of the few papers in which I can find  a fair representation of the sentiments of those who do not agree, as well as a representation of the view of those who do agree with you.”  Garrison comments:  “This tribute to the fairness and impartiality of The Liberator is certainly deserved, and when it ceases to be, may every subscriber drop the paper as unworthy of his patronage, and place its editor in the ranks of the unjust and cowardly”.
