Summary
James Clarke White, though "almost a stranger" to William Lloyd Garrison, writes Garrison that he has been for him a "prominent object of thought since 1830", when he heard Garrison lecture in Providence, Rhode Island. White informs Garrison that as the old guard of abolitionists pass one by one, he is increasingly attached to those whom remain. White recounts receiving letters from John Greenleaf Whittier and Maria L. Child, and informs Garrison that his practice of hanging Child's printed antislavery verses in the windows of his old storefront "came near exciting fearful mob violence". White details his years of laboring in the antislavery cause in Boston, Louisville, and Cincinnati, and asserts his having been "muffled & persecuted again & again", living through "fearful struggles" and witnessing "fearful sights". White reports having read of a memorial to Brother John Thompson
