George Fitzhugh writes to William Lloyd Garrison thanking him for publishing his last letter in the Liberator [appearing in the Liberator of November 28, under the pseudonym '"A Southerner"] and telling him that he has "acknowledged your liberality in a book that will soon appear from the press." He sends Garrison another article to publish in the Liberator and says, "the theory is from S[tephen] P[earl] Andrews' 'Science of Society,' the ablest philsophical work and best defense of slavery ever written in America." He complains that Andrews has stopped corresponding with him and tells Garrison, "I am a little miffed, or I would give him credit for it." Fitzhugh declares that he does not "consider our form of society perfect" but he believes that African-Americans "domestic affection would come into full play to correct those evils, which difference of race and that diabolical theory of the Types of Manknd, seem only to aggravate."
