Nell recalls anti-slavery work at Franklin Hall

In the June 28, 1861 Liberator, quotes from a letter from William Cooper Nell, appear under a title, RECOLLECTIONS OF FRANKLIN HALL.  “The building just taken down from the north corner of Franklin and Washington streets, to make way for modern improvements, has a historic interest, anti-slavery wise, which, for  ‘auld lang syne’,  you perhaps may deem worthy of record in the Liberator “…. then Nell refers to “the third story room, called Franklin Hall, which, not so large as the present business office of the Mass. Anti-Slavery Society, (directly opposite, and in which I write these lines)”… Nell recalls several people who were converted to immediateism on one occasion there.
