2. Reverdy C. Ransom, William Lloyd Garrison: The Centennial Oration Delivered by Reverdy C. Ransom in Faneuil Hall, Boston, Mass., U.S.A., Dec. 11, 1905 ([Boston]: Boston Suffrage League, [1906?]). (12 p.)

Eulogy to William Lloyd Garrison delivered by an African American pastor. Garrison’s picture appears on the cover, and a portrait of the speaker can be found on the first page. Mr. Stone has marked a single passage. “The status of the Negro in this country was not settled by emancipation; the 15th amendment to the constitution which it was confidently believed would clothe him forever with political influence and power, is more bitterly opposed today than it was a quarter of a century ago. The place which the Negro is to occupy is still a vital and burning question.”
