Lydia Maria Child (1802-1880) was an ardent abolitionist born in Massachusetts. In this letter written to William Lloyd Garrison and published in the National Anti-Slavery Standard, an abolitionist newspaper, Child feels that now that slaves are freed, they will need protection and advocates and that Anti-Slavery Societies should become Protection Societies. She also feels this protection should be extended to Native Americans. She disagrees with Garrison's views on how the freed slaves were being treated in Louisiana, feeling that General Nathanial Banks' system made the slaves only partially free. The National Anti-Slavery Standard was the American Anti-Slavery Society's official newspaper. It was published from 1840 to 1870.
