In speaking of A.S. movement
I may have left too much to
be inferred. The excitement was
produced, urged on and intensi-
fied by floods of Abolition papers
speeches and documents, procured
without stint over the country.
--and especially into the school; and
by lecturers, many and able, sent
into all the important places. Among
these was ^that^ eloquent foreigner Thompson
who after long persuasion was reluc-
tantly permitted to speak before
the people and students upon the Hill.
Well do I remember him and how
we almost shuddered in imagination
lest we should be swallowed whole,
when he opened ^wide^ the doors of his
face to pour the floods of his
eloquence upon us.
