I have relied heavily on this correspondence and on the holdings at the Clements Library at the University of Michigan from whence it came. In particular, I have sought through the letters to give a sense of range and depth to the ideas of Angelina Grimké, to stress, that is, the intersection of experience and principle, the proximity of the private and the public, that so marked her rhetorical career. The single most important contribution to the study of Grimké is the work of Gerda Lerner, whose publication in 1967 of The Grimké Sisters from South Carolina: Pioneers for Woman's Rights and Abolition culminated years of research and writing on the subject.
Campbell's recovery and interpretation of early feminist texts has greatly expanded our perspective on the sources, contexts, and implications of women's rights in the nineteenth century. It is not too much to say, I think, that for rhetorical critics at work in departments of communication, Campbell's efforts have set in place the possibility of our own. Given the rhetorical sensibilites of Ginsberg, Yellin, Abzug, Campbell and many other historians and critics, what I offer in the following may be notable only as a matter of degree and not kind.
They may be interpreted as a series of exemplary encounters, functioning rhetorically as they invoke an optimal relationship with the putative reader. That is not, of course, to say that such a relationship need be based on the expectation of ultimate conversion. The encounter works, rather, to promote a model of how principled disagreement ought to be managed. Such a display must have been difficult to prepare: the author was by this time fully integrated into the volatile world of abolitionism, where moderation on either side was becoming a rarity.
