Rate this:
C. Grant writes to Caroline Weston in regards to sending a circular with a number of names "for Cohasset, which is entirely new ground," with very scanty knowledge of the anti-slavery issue. There is opposition from retired sea-captains and mackeral vessel owners. The unitarian minister preachers well and shows considerable moral courage "for a minister." I.S. Smith of Hingham lectured before the Lyceum here on Milton, with reference to present day conditions. The writer thinks that Garrison's paper has not suffered from his illness, but has been fully as "spicy." He would like to talk with Caroline about the changing matter on board Somers." He does not value the opinion of the court martial highly, "For many of the officers on board naval vessels, have as little regard...for the life of a sailor, as for that of a dog." In a postscript, he remarks that Francis Jackson would make a good and popular governor.
