Colored Support in Boston

August 13, 1831

Writing to a committee of men in Boston, (including J. Telemachus Hilton), acknowledges their support.  “Nothing encourages me more, than to witness the singular unanimity which every where exists among my colored brethren, and to know that they look up to the press as the great instrument under the blessing of God, for accomplishing their restoration.  The liberal donation which they have made… for the support of the Liberator, is the best proof of the deep interrest which is felt on this subject.” 1
