2 Channing, W.H. William Henry. Autograph Letter, Signed.

Dated Liverpool, March 22, 1855. To Richard Davis Webb, Irish printer and anti-slavery reformer. He explains that "Mr. Carpenter" has taken his statement out of context, and he has written to "Mr. Pilsbury" (sic) about the matter. He writes in general about his role in the controversy between Frederick Douglass and the "'Garrison Abolitionists'". He now believes that Douglass's "continued hostility" was responsible for the most of the difficulty, and that the words quoted by Carpenter were based on his prior experience with Douglass in Rochester. It is essential that anti-slavery forces "present a united front" on both sides of the water, that "the Slave-Power is strong", but more "from the division of its foes, than from its own inherent energy." Douglass had frequently visited Channing in his lodgings in Rochester in 1854. Channing left for Liverpool in the autumn of that year, and quickly made the acquaintance of the local reformers, such as Mary and Philip Carpenter (see DNB). The American Parker Pillsbury had represented the Garrisonian "American Anti-Slavery Society" in Great Britain in 1854. Six pages, about 300 words. Mounting adhesions, offsetting from something printed laid against p.1, folded for mailing. A Very Good letter.
