Finding aid only for Manuscripts Small Collection 2876. Letter, 20 August 1860, of William Shreve Bailey, Newport, Kentucky, to Mrs. E. J. Hotchkiss. Bailey, the editor of the abolitionist newspaper The Free South, thanks her for her subscription, reports that he has resumed publication (a mob damaged his press the previous year) despite threats against him, and regrets that fellow abolitionist Cassius M. Clay “turned against” him “in a fright.” Bailey’s letterhead advises correspondents to address him at Covington because of the enmity of the pro-slavery postmaster at Newport.
