In Boston, the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society rejects a proposal to disband since its work is done

Meeting in Boston, the thirty-first annual meeting of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society heard William Lloyd Garrison propose that the work was done and that the society should be dissolved.  Wendell Phillips led a successful challenge to this proposal and a new slate of society officials was elected and installed to continue efforts for racial equality.  (By John Osborne)
