“Ownership of the Liberator”

‘OWNERSHIP OF THE LIBERATOR’     The Boston Recorder of yesterday inquires  —

“Is the New England Anti-Slavery Society now the owner of the Liberator?”
Answer  —- NO

“Are the funds of the Society pledged for its support?”

Answer  — NO

“Shall we do wrong, if we held the Society responsible for what the Liberator says of us?”

Answer  — YES

The editor’s characteristic  finger appears pointing: — –  The editor of the Liberator is alone responsible for its sentiments.  The Society, at our own request, has kindly consented to let Mr. Bacon act as our General Agent, as a matter of convenience to us.
