DescriptionFrederick Douglass Autograph Quotation Signed. One page, 5" x 8", Washington, D.C., October 20, 1883. American abolitionist, editor, orator, author, statesman and reformer, Frederick Douglass knew John Brown through abolitionist circles but did not approve of Brown's intent to start a slave revolt, thinking that Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry would negatively influence public opinion against the abolition of slavery. However, years later, Douglass would recognize Brown's contribution to ending America's "peculiar institution." In full: "John Brown saw slavery through no mist or cloud but in a light of infinite brightness, which left no one of its ten thousand horrors concealed. Fred.k Douglass." Newspaper clipping affixed to interior page announcing Douglass' second marriage: "The Colored Septuagenarian Weds a Young White Woman." Fine. Moderate age toning; small tears at lower left/fold; slight separation at fold.
