Lucy Stone at Bangor


Miss Lucy Stone closed her course of lectures in this city, on Tuesday evening, by a lecture on the subject of slavery, on which occasion she had one of the largest audiences every assembled at City Hall.  Miss Stone is a highly interesting lecturer, calm, quiet, keen, self-possessed; and although she says a great many hard things, and took several extreme positions regarding slavery, slave holders, political parties, and religious churches, yet the apparent sincerity of her convictions, her calm manner and the gentle sweetness of her voice, caused her to be listened to with marked attention, and to win for her the reputation of being true to her convictions, and a woman worthy to address the public on matters of great public interest .  –Bangor Whig, March 16
