Need for more abolition papers

“Proposals have been issued for a weekly periodical, to be published alternately at Philadelphia and New York, and conducted by Marcus T.C. Gould, and Isaac Hooper, distinquished members of the Society of Friends . … We wish them the most ample success. There are now but two periodicals expressly devoted to the abolition of slavery, The Genius of Universal Emancipation and the Liberator. The cause demands a hundred presses.”    (Liberator, January 22, 1831)
