Summary
Rust writes to Garrison informing him of the union between the American Freedmen's Commission and the American Union Commission, who propose to combine their efforts to aid not only freedmen of the South, but poor Caucausian citizens as well. Rust states that while the aims of this organization are noble in nature, their own efforts are aimed at aiding freedmen alone, "believing them to have pre-eminent claims upon us". Rust sends Garrison a list of resolutions adopted by their Board of Directors articulating, defending, and perpetuating this distinction of purpose, and invite Garrison's approval of their efforts
