Ralph Waldo Emerson, about Garrison

“Ralph Waldo Emerson, who a for along time had been prejudiced against him, in 1844 wrote in his Journal:  ‘The haters of Garrison have lived to rejoice in that  grand world movement which, every age or two, casts out so masterly an agent for good. I cannot speak of the gentleman without respect.’ ”    Found in Portrait of America, by Stephen B. Oates, in VIII, by Robert V. Remini
