John Greenleaf Whittier leaves editorship, Haverhill Gazette

“Our friend, John Greenleaf Whittier, we regret to perceive, has vacated the editorial chair of the Haverhill Gazette. He has not occupied it in vain.  He has not only ‘done the State’, but mankind service, by his  scorching denunciations of human oppression, and his splendid and thrilling appeals in favor of the rights of man.”   This is followed by his valediction.   (Liberator, Dec 24, 1836, pg 3)
