Herald of Freedom Founded in Lawrence

Herald of Freedom
Lawrence, Kansas
January  13, 1855  

Topeka. A new town site with the above name has been selected and is now rapidly filling up with Eastern people. It is located about 25 miles above this point on the Kansas river and will probably be a point of considerable importance....

Notices of the press....

The Herald of Freedom is the title of a new paper to be published in Kansas by G. W. Brown, formerly of the Conneautville Courier, the first number of which is now before us....His enterprise has built up a handsome business in our sister town, which he leaves to seek his fortune in the Far West.... -- Crawford (Pa.) Democrat.

We are pleased to know that the project has been committed to one possessing the talents, enterprise and industry of Mr. Brown. With him there is no such word as "fail" and now the friends of freedom in the states should extend to him a prompt and liberal support.... -- New Castle (Pa.) Promulgator.

It is the duty of the friends of freedom in the East and North to sustain this newspaper as an easy way to invest two dollars in this great enterprise of giving freedom and Christianity to Kansas, and keeping out slavery and heathenism. -- Boston Commonwealth.

Filled with interesting matter, mostly original, relative to the new Territory. Persons feeling an interest in the settlement of Kansas, and especially those who desire to make it a free state, should by all means patronize the Herald of Freedom. -- N. Y. Tribune.

The Herald of Freedom will be found to be a more potent weapon on the side of Liberty than tar and feathers, revolvers, and the loud-mouthed and insulting resolutions of the band of ruffians which usually precede the triumphal march of the "chivalry." -- Pittsburgh Commercial Gazette.

G. W. Brown, attorney at law. May be found at Herald of Freedom office, K.T.
