Anne Warren Weston gives an account of Frederick Douglass' lecture. Douglass spoke in a familiar vein and kept the audience laughing. Mrs. Tyler remembered having seen him in Baltimore. His master was a Mr. Merriman, and Douglass's real name was Edward. Warren Weston "stepped up to him quietly & called him 'Edward' at which he started as though he had been shot."
