A Pro-slavery Handbill
This was printed at the office of the Boston Commercial

Gazette, under the direction of the proprietor, James L.
Homer, on the 21st of October, 1835, and was directed
against George Thompson, who was then causing great ex-
citement by his eloquent addresses against slavery. The
poster was set up and run off on a hand-press by two ap-
prentices of Homer, one of whom was George C. Rand,
subsequently a master printer of Boston and the first
printer of “Uncle Tom's Cabin.”' These two boys then
distributed them among the bar-rooms and barber-shops
of the business section of the city, with the result that by
two o'clock a raging mob of five thousand people gathered
about the antislavery office, and shortly after laid violent
hands upon Mr. Garrison, in the absence of Mr. Thompson,

who was out of the city.
