"The future historian of the abolition of American slavery, on being furnished with the files of the Liberator, will find nearly all the materials he can require to complete his history, on both sides of the question(Wm. Lloyd Garrison in Lib. 17:6).

“The establishment of that Museum (the department of selections labelled “The Refuge of Oppression "], we believe, was a strictly original idea with Mr. Garrison. We apprehend that he was the first man who ever set up for show the caricatures which were made of himself, and the stones and dirt with which he had been pelted, and who kept on hand a gibbet on which anybody that pleased might hang him in effigy.

The Liberator is one of the few papers which will remain a standard historical authority as to the matter of which it treats, and which will be the substance of our current history.

The Liberator will be permanently valuable as containing the very Age and Body of the Time, its Form and Pressure,' as to the controlling element of our destiny,

will hold its place on the shelves of public libraries as one of the authentic sources of the history of this day and generation" (Edmund Quincy).
