Scope and Contents: This small collection consists of autographs, correspondence, and images of prominent abolitionists. Includes autographs, all with brief quotations, from William Lloyd Garrison, Wendell Phillips, Gerrit Smith, Charles Sumner, Parker Pillsbury, Anna E. Dickinson, and one unidentified person. Also present is correspondence, mostly brief letters of salutation, from Wendell Phillips, Parker Pillsbury, and Theodore Parker. Also included is a photograph of William Lloyd Garrison and a reproduced image of Charles Sumner, the latter of which includes an autograph and a quotation. Additionally, one four-page letter to the Franklin Female Antislavery Society, perhaps an internal letter functioning as a statement of belief, is addressed to "sisters in the cause of justice, humanity, & benevolence," which has overtones of Suffragist rhetoric.
