"An attack on certain anti-slavery writings of Rev. J.G. Forman" [Work]. The caption title of this scarce pamphlet:: "Review of Rev. J.G. Forman's (Ultra Unitarian 'Come-Outer,') Defence of Garrisonianism, Infidelity, etc., and of his Personal Abuse of Individuals."
For 'personal abuse', however, it is difficult to top Medico's pamphlet, accusing Forman of "ranting, croaking and sniveling," "mawkish foolery," and being a "rabid specimen of humanity," among other sins. "The pineal gland of this fanatical abolition atmosphere" seems to make these abolitionists so unpleasant. Medico denounces the "Garrisonian ultraism" displayed by Forman and his ilk. "These rabid men, by their rashness, and imprudence, and abuse, do much harm, and thus retard the cause of freedom." In fact, they call for men to resist the fugitive slave law "with a dagger."
