Douglass sayi:
Let dear old Capt. Brown (who now is beyond
the wrath and fury of the alarmed tyrants who
have done their worst upon him) have all the
glory of the origin, progress and result of that
enterprise. . He needed no prompting no urg

I deeply sympathize with the great purpose of

have the satisfaction of knowing that I opposed

to a premature and disastrous conclusion . .,

the failure at that point, and the little band
