Frederick Douglass and newspapers

Frederick Douglass

In the last Ram’s Horn it is announced that Mr. Douglass has become interested in that paper, and is the assistant editor.  He suggests a change of it name, to that of Fugitive American.  Under whatever name he may contend, (although we believe there is much in a name, especially if it be a good one,) we are sure our brother Douglass will speak and write manfully and effectually against the slavery of this nation; and we need not say he has our heartiest sympathy good wishes.

From the following article it will be seen that Mr. Douglass has also engaged to become a regular contributor to the Anti-Slavery Standard.  This will be a most welcome announcement to all the friends of that paper.  May he be strong to bear all the labors and responsibilities which are laid upon him.
