The Ladies of Boston, “Right and Wrong in Boston”

Many have done nobly, but it seems to us just now that the ladies of Boston have exceeded them all. We mean the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society, the undaunted little band who met and prayed for the slave in the midst of a mob of five thousand “gentlemen of property and standing” on the memorable 22nd of October, 1835.  They have issued a second “Right and Wrong In Boston”, for 1836.  (Liberator, Jan 21, 1837, pg 4)
