Gratitude for “colored brethren” beyond Boston

The editor has barely time to inform his readers, that, after an absence of four weeks, he is again seated at his table.  His visit to the great cities has afforded him the highest gratification, and vastly augmented his confidence and courage in the cause of equal rights.  To his colored brethren he tenders his grateful acknowledgement, for their liberal expressions of esteem and enthusiastic reception of his person.  A grateful tear or a fervent blessing of theirs, outweighs all the abuse and persecution which he has received, and is constantly receiving from the enemies of justice.   (Liberator, July 2, 1831)
