Title:
Letter from George Henry Hoyt, Athol, [Mass.], to William Lloyd Garrison, Aug. 2'd, 1859
Description:
Hoyt reports that a self-professed fugitive slave by the name of "E.L. Clifford" had delivered an address on the "Emancipation movement' which Hoyt declares to have been plagiarized from a prior Garrison (or Wendell Phillips) address given at the 1858 Anti-Slavery gathering in Lexington, & subsequently published in "The Liberator". Hoyt requests that Garrison forward to his attention a copy of this speech, so that he can verify (for private purposes) that the address given by Mr. Clifford was in fact first published in "The Liberator".
