Release of Calvin Fairbank

The Liberator, May 13, 1864, contains notice of the Release of Fairbank, “who was implicated with Della Webster in enticing slaves from Kentucky, several years since, who had served twelve of a sentence of fifteen years in the Frankfort Penitentiary, was pardoned by Lieutenant Governor Jacobs, while performing executive duties during Governor Bramlette’s absence from the state”.   The article refers to the previous  “cruel wrong”  done to Fairbank.  A quoted article is from the New York Independent.
