Garrison affirmed by Tappan

New York, Jan 26, 1835

My Dear Friend,   I have attentively read your remarks on the proceedings of the late Convention in Boston, to form what I should call An Anti-Garrison Society, and, for one, I cordially approve  them.  They will meet a hearty response from every true-hearted emancipationist in the land.  The times require decision and courage, and I feel thankful to God for your steadfastness at the post which His providence has assigned you.  Go on and prosper, thou friend of the oppressed!  The  Lord will be they shield and buckler.  With unabated esteem, Your friend and fellow-laborer,  LEWIS TAPPAN
