wards of five thousand miles on foot, and more than
twenty thousand in other ways, and held more than
two hundred public meetings. Lundy's paper was
not regarded as very dangerous to the institution
of slavery; but the Journal of the Times, published
first at Bennington, Vermont, in support of J. Q.
Adams for the presidency, became the inveterate
foe to slavery under the editorship of William Lloyd
Garrison, who was mobbed in the streets of Boston,
and imprisoned for libel in the city of Baltimore for
denouncing the crew of the ship " Francis Todd,"
on board of which were many ill-treated slaves
bound for the slave marts of New Orleans. Garri¬
son and Lundy united in getting out The Genius of
Universal Emancipation at Baltimore.
Arthur Tappan, before this, paid Garrison's fine,
and the enemy to slavery commenced his war with
more vigor and zeal than before. In 1831 The
Liberator was first published by Garrison, and, as
was his desire, it continued till " every slave in
America was free."
A "Colored Man," James Forten, sent $50
among the first twenty-five subscriptions that came
to The Liberator. Garrison thought it his duty to
obey God rather than man, and he denounced the
Constitution of the United States as being a " Cov¬
enant with death and an agreement with hell," be¬
cause he held that it supported slavery.
