Henry Wright to Elizabeth Pease, about Garrison

October 29, 1847

Henry Wright describes at length the poor health of Garrison, after visiting him in Cleveland.  “You will see little from his pen in the Liberator for some time.”  Wright also says that he is going to Buffalo, to be present at the Liberty Party Convention. “I go not there to join the Convention but as a looker-on.  I abjure allegiance to a constitution that sanctions slavery or war. It has no authority over me, and I shall embrace every opportunity to make it and the government that is based upon it, the scorn of mankind.”
