Merrill, Walter M. Letters of William Lloyd Garrison, v.1, no.44.
Besides editing, William Lloyd Garrison has to set the type, print, and mail the Liberator. Garrison writes: "We have just taken a colored apprentice, however, who will shortly be able to alleviate our toil." The Liberator has been recieved by the white population "with suspicion or apathy." Garrison says: "Upon the colored population in the free states, it has operated like a trumpet-call." He commends Mr. Samuel Edmund Sewall. The philanthropist William Ladd spoke highly of May.
