Letter from Nathan Winslow, Portland, [Maine], to William Lloyd Garrison, 1833 [March] 10
Nathan Winslow writes to William Lloyd Garrison after reading in the Liberator about Garrison's plans to travel to England. He tells Garrison that he had sent Jonathan Backhouse, "an English Friend," a letter of introduction for him, and calls Backhouse "an orthodox minister, a strong abolitionist, [and] an influential man in England". Winslow then shares his hope that "Miss [Prudence] Crandall's school will succeed in defiance of its dastardly opposers," and asks about the "Manual Labor School." He also reports on the progress of the antislavery movement in Portland, declaring "the seeds of Anti-Slavery are sown in this place".
