Merrill, Walter M. Letters of William Lloyd Garrison, v.5, no.90.
The Executive Committee of the American Anti-Slavery Society met to consider Wendell Phillips's charges that the National Anti-Slavery Standard has become a "partisan Lincoln sheet" and that Oliver Johnson was opposed to John C. Frémont and the Cleveland convention. The Executive Committee has decided that great care must be exercised to avoid seeming to favor Lincoln's election.
