Quote from Lafayette

In the upper left corner of the front page, Jan 7, 1832,  Liberator, is this quote:

“When I am indulging in my views of American prospects, and American liberty, it is mortifying to be told that in that very country, a large portion of the people  are slaves.  It is a dark spot on the face of the nation.  Such a state of things cannot always exist.”
