Liberator enters third decade

THE LIBERATOR — ANTI-SLAVERY SOIREE     The Liberator, having completed the TWENTIETH YEAR of its existence, and entered upon its third decade, many of its friends and patrons have expressed a desire to join with the friends of the Anti-Slavery cause generally, as far as practicable, in celebrating the event in a suitable manner.  On consultation, it has been decided to hold a SOIREE, for this special object, in Cochituate Hall, Boston, on Friday evening, January 24th at the close of the annual meeting of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society….. there will be vocal and instrumental music, and addresses by George Thompson, Wendell Phillips, Edmund Quincy, W. L. Garrison, and other friends of emancipation.
