Description:
(1811-1884) Reformer, prominent abolitionist from 1837, associate of Wm. Lloyd Garrison; president of Anti-Slavery Society 1865-70. Phillips contented that racial injustice was the source of all of society's ills, and, like Garrison, denounced the Constitution for tolerating slavery. In later years advocated prohibition, woman suffrage, Native American rights, penal reforms, regulation of corporations, and organization of the working class. 7 x 4 ½ ALS, no place, no date, 2pp (1st & 3rd pages of folded sheet) to Miss Andrews (“Dear Friend”), accepting an invitation and sending regards to her father whom Phillips hopes is “fully restored.” In some unusual jocularity, he adds: “What right has any one living in that Elyssium of Bristol to be ill! I thought you left that …to us poor outside Barbarians.”
