William Lloyd Garrison wrote this lecture or speech about John Greenleaf Whittier. Garrison begins with this explanation: "I have chosen for my theme, this evening, one whose genius and character are, I think, worthy of all admiration---John Greenleaf Whittier, the Quaker poet. And this will justify an introductory episode in regard to the origin and peculiarities of Quakerism."
