Libertas writes to William Lloyd Garrison about the end of plans to "establish an anti-slavery journal for Frederick Douglass." Libertas argues that Douglass "would be as successful an editor, as he has been a lecturer" and that the plans should not be abandoned. They state that editorial work would not "withdraw him from the field as a lecturer" as Garrison and many other abolitionist editors are able to manage their newspapers and still go on lecture tours. Furthermore, Libertas suggests that Douglass' paper would provide those who never had an opportunity to hear Douglass speak to "be gratified in possessing the product of his pen." They also state that Douglass' paper would be supported by African-Americans since "he is better known to them than any other" abolitionist, and now "they expect the paper, and the suppression of it will be to them a severe disappointment."
