Garrison on Colonization Society

In a May 11 note to Knapp, written from New York,  Garrison tells of meetings he has attended, and then adds this at the end: “Last evening the Colonization Society held their meeting at the Chatham Street Chapel, to a crowded audience, made up of a very large number of our friends.  The speeches were as incoherent, and weak, and wicked, and blasphemous, as the spirit of brutality and impiety could concoct.”
