More Southern Thunder Against Abolitionists

The January 2, 1840, Liberator, includes this in the column Refuge of Oppression, reserved for items Garrison hates,  reported from a Southern state legislature:   “He who values his birthright, or the land of his adoption, who should protect his right of property, or sustain the institution of slavery as it exists in the South, who detests the vile machinations of the fanatical ABOLITIONISTS, or who dares to MAINTAIN AT EVERY HAZARD SOUTHERN INSTITUTIONS,  SOUTHERN PRINCIPLES, AND SOUTHERN RIGHTS — let him unflinchingly act out what he professes.”
