William Lloyd Garrison compares the unity of all good people opposed to slavery with that of the early Christians. Garrison agrees with Thomas Shipley's favorable opinion of Gerrit Smith's speech before the convention at Peterboro. He agrees, also, on the need for an amendment to the Constitution. Garrison writes: "I like your suggestion, respecting the propriety of holding quarterly meetings of the Managers of the Parent Society, and will allude to it in the Liberator." Garrison welcomes the reappearance of Benjamin Lundy's Genius of Universal Emancipation. Garrison comments on Dr. William E. Channing's "sort of Ishmaelitish work on slavery."
