The manuscript fur tho pampHlet he carried to several publishers in Boston, but none oflheradared to be guilty of pub lislïing a doccutnent so strange and ultra and it was n. long time befure he could ge any one to undertake the printing of i' and at last, only by leaving off the publisher's name on theoutside of the covers where it usually appears!
