The Mirror of Liberty for July 1838

The Mirror of Liberty was the first American magazine for Black readers edited by David Ruggles, an African-American abolitionist living in NYC. The Mirror of Liberty only existed from 1838 to 1840 due to Ruggles’s poor health. Ruggles was very active in many abolitionist activities such as assisting the Vigilance committee to help fugitive slaves escape and contributing to other abolitionist publications.

Fantastic Content William Lloyd Garrison Autograph Letter Signed From Reconstruction — ”…it was Mr. Sumner’s hope and intention to bias the minds of the colored voters of the country…”

William Lloyd Garrison autograph letter signed. From Roxbury, Massachusetts, the abolitionist writes to Reverand W.T. Briggs on 20 August 1872. Letter reads in part, ”…thanks for your cordial approval of my letter to Mr. Sumner…When I wrote that letter, I had no thought that it would attract anything like the attention it has done…As it was Mr. Sumner’s hope and intention to bias the minds of the colored voters of the country in favor of Mr. Greely’s election I felt that I owed it to them [the newly enfranchised black voters] as well as the people generally to confront him [Sumner] as a bad adviser at this crisis, and to warn them not to accept his conclusions on the grounds of the eminent service he has rendered their cause since he espoused it. Their response has been most hearty: they will not follow Mr. Sumner’s lead in this matter, but will register their votes in favor of the Republican administration and its candidate, almost to a man. Indeed, they need little if any guidance as to know how they shall vote; for they have a better knowledge of the spirit and designs of those who held them in bondage, and who rose in rebellion to make that bondage secure against fate itself, than any other class in the country; and they will act accordingly. As their physical aid was essential, on the battle-field, to the suppression of the rebellion; so their political power is equally necessary to save the government from falling into the hands of its most dangerous enemies, and it will be as triumphantly exerted. Very respectfully yours, William Lloyd Garrison”. Two-page letter on a single sheet measures 5” x 8”. Toning and creasing with some paper loss to upper right. Near fine given age, with beautiful, legible handwriting perfect for display. Sold for $9,582.
