Nell to assist on Frederick Douglass’s paper

” William Cooper Nell has left for Rochester, where he will assist in the office of the paper which Frederick Douglass is about to publish there.  Those of his friends who have occasion to write to him, will please notice that his address is now Rochester, New York.  Mr. Nell has won for himself, in his native place, an enviable character for urbanity, high moral principles and integrity above suspicion …. He carries with him the good wishes and kind remembrances of those who have  witnessed his earnest efforts to improve and elevate himself and his fellows, and his generous interest in every good cause.” signed W.P.)   (Liberator, November 26, 1847, pg 2)
