Garrison and Mississippi Constitution

October 20, 1865

Here is a series of letters purported to illustrate that Garrison has expressed “satisfaction” with the Mississippi Constitution.  The editor comments:  ” the readers of the Liberator will require no assurance from us that the above-recorded correspondence is a bold and an audacious forgery; but, inasmuch as it is getting extensive publication in the newspapers, without note or comment, as though it were authentic, and therefore multitudes of thoughtless people may regard it as genuine, we are obliged to brand it as fictitious, utterly ridiculous as the whole affair is.”
