In this letter to William Lloyd Garrison, Gamaliel Bailey asks if Garrison could help find employment for James Boyle. Bailey says that while he and Boyle often have different views, he "entertain[s] for him a sincere and cordial friendship" and calls him a man of "integrity and peculiarly high-minded." He suggests that if Garrison's "Non-Resistant [newspaper is] in a flourishing condition" then Boyle could work as "a salaried editor" and "would ask nothing more than enough to eat, drink and wear for himself and wife." Bailey also mentions that Ralph R. Gurley has recently toured the area advocating Colonization and has "humbugged the people of Cincinnati out of about $2000." Still, he believes the discussion has favored the abolition cause, and "every way we have gained." In the postscript, he explains that he believed Garrison, Lydia Maria Child, and Edmund Quincy "rendered gratuitous service to the Non-Resistant and would gladly be released from the editorial responsibilites" if an editor could be found.
