William Cooper Nell to assist Frederick Douglass’s paper


Mr. Nell has left for Rochester, where he will assist in the office of the paper which Frederick Douglass is about to publish there.  Those of his friends who have occasion to write to him, will please notice that his address is now Rochester, New York.

Mr. Nell has won for himself, in his native place, an enviable character for urbanity, high moral principle and integrity above suspicion.  The various associations of our colored friends for moral, literary and social purposes will lose in him a most efficient, devoted and indefatigable friend, and one whose exertions have often been the mainstay of such enterprises.  He carries with him the good wishes and kind remembrance of those who have witnessed his earnest efforts to improve and elevate himself and his fellows, and his generous interest in every good cause.  – W.P
