Rate this:
Elizur Wright Jr. writes to Maria Weston Chapman in regards to not taking the defection of James Trask Woodbury and Charles Fitch so seriously. He doesn't think that Garrison and [Amos A.] Phelps should have put so much effort into attacking the Clerical Appeal. He writes, "It was the production of weak men acting in the character of cat's paws." He thinks the Liberator is partly to blame for the "weak brethen." He intends to attack the clergy as long as any of them defend slavery. He thought there were personal motives mixed into the strife over the Appeal. He didn't think Garrison could have been injured. He writes, "to be plain, if Garrison is injured from any quarter, I fear it will be from his best friend himself." He disapproves of Garrison's letter and says he didn't have to answer James Trask Woodbury's letter.
