Letter from Henry Clarke Wright, Cleveland, O[hio], to William Lloyd Garrison, 68 Jan[uary] 7
In this letter to William Lloyd Garrison, Henry Clarke Wright describes reading a letter from Garrison to Thomas and Mary Jones "in which you so generously allude to them" and the "deep-felt happiness to the whole family [given] by your just & friendly tribute." He then changes topics to "the Ohio Democracy" and discusses the Democratic party's majority in the state Legislature and their efforts to "rescind the assent of Ohio to the Constitutional Amendment (of the U.S. Constitution) abolishing slavery!" Wright calls this program "the Key Note of the party in every state in the coming Presidental Elections" along with a proposal for a new amendment banning African-Americans from all particpation in government. He then references the "Declaration of Sentiments on Radical Peace of 1838" adopted by the Peace Convention in Boston, and details his lecture schedule in Ohio.
