William Lloyd Garrison writes to a friend about the impact of John Brown's death.
William Lloyd Garrison, in a postscript to a letter to a Boston colleague, wrote that "John Brown executed will do more for our good cause, incomparably, than John Brown pardoned." Brown had been hanged just over two weeks before in Virginia. (By John Osborne)
