William Lloyd Garrison sympathizes with David Lee Child and Lydia Maria Child in their suffering from "unjust prosecution." He wants David Lee Child to be the editor of the Emancipator instead of Amos Augustus Phelps. David Lee Child's knowledge of politics is needed. There was an uproar in Boston over the kidnapping of two colored women.
