Letter to William Lloyd Garrison

I find the relationship between Frederick Douglas and William Lloyd Garrison to be a very interesting one.  On one hand, they shared much in common in terms of values and interests, but on the other, they still remained distant in some ways, their relationship marred by the shroud of racism and slavery that enveloped the country during the time period.  This letter from Douglas sheds some light on the intimacy and closeness of their relationship.
