Letter from Francis Jackson, Boston, [Mass.], to William Lloyd Garrison, Sept[ember] 30 1846
Francis Jackson writes William Lloyd Garrison to appraise him of recent activity in Boston pertinent to the Anti-Slavery Society. Jackson informs Garrison that there have been four meetings at Faneuil Hall, and a lecture by Rev. E.N. Kink that are worth considering. Jackson states that the Democratic State Convention was plagued by low attendence, that the Whig Convention showed a stark fracture between pro-slavery ("Cotton") Whigs and anti-slavery ("Conscience") Whigs, and that John Quincy Adams presided over a meeting in support of a fugitive slave who was kidnapped in Boston and sent to New Orleans. In closing, Jackson describes Rev. Kink's lecture on the convention of the formation of the Evangelical Alliance.
