Summary
Francis William Newman writes William Lloyd Garrison a letter of praise for his labors on behalf of humanity against the forces of oppression and the "immense moral weight" of his words, and congratulates him on his "disdaining any compromise", moral or otherwise, with the advocates of slavery. Newman asserts his belief that the American Civil War was one of "a glorious & fruitful war of freedom" came to pass upon learning that Garrison and Wendell Phillips had become "Unionists and supporters of the war". Newman relates the perception of the English populace on the Emancipation Proclamation, and offers rebuttals from a legal perspective to select popular criticisms of the document. Newman sounds a word of warning concerning Lincoln's Reconstruction policies, arguing that as long as they stand upon "false immoral principles", the gains won by reconstruction "may be lost in a single week", and states his fear that English or French troops might intervene if the conquered and occupied South breaks out in rebellion anew
