Strong Condemnation of Garrison

From the American Wesleyan Observer, signed by Orange Scott.  ‘ Till within the last two years we have had unlimited confidence in Mr. Garrison. We have defended him in private and in public.  But we must say, we lost our confidence, in great measure, even in his moral integrity! We can no longer view him as an honorable, high-minded man  — not even as a man of true moral principle!……Look at the mean, underhanded course taken by Mr. Garrison to instill his peculiar and disorganizing notions upon the community!”   It goes on to claim that he wants to rule all the abolitionists of the country, who oppose his notions of perfectionism , his desire to “crowd forward the women into all public stations and duties”
