Garrison deprecates the spirit of vengeance in Walker

G deprecates the spirit of vengeance in Walker,  “Nevertheless, it is not for the American people as a nation, to denounce it as bloody or monstrous.  Mr. Walker but pays them in their own coin, but follows their own creed, adopts their own coin, but adopts their own language.”

G goes on to remind Americans that every time they complain about foreign oppression, “is a call for their slaves to destroy them.”  ….every 4th of July celebration, “must embitter and enflame the minds of the slaves.”

Here also, G comments on the suspicion that Walker may not have written the Appeal himself:  … “the Appeal bears the strongest internal evidence of having emanated from his own mind . No white man could have written in language so natural and enthusiastic.”
