Tax Resistance and Bronson Alcott

A certain “C.L.”, from Concord, writes to the Liberator, with reference to a recent attempt to jail Alcott for failure to pay a tax:  “Many are the points worthy of consideration involved in this uncouth, barbaric, unchristian state of the law; and I earnestly trust you will not allow the occasion to escape your enlightened and benevolent pen,  nor fail to inform the public at large of the facts.” ( Liberator, January 27, 1843)
