"Reformatory Lecturers," Woodhull & Claflin's Weekly (New York), August 16; "Directory of Social Freedom," August 30

In view of the determination recently manifested by certain would-be authorities in Spiritualism, and from a sincere desire to promote their expressed purposes, to set up a distinction that will produce a free and a muzzled rostrum; we shall henceforth publish in this list the names and addresses of such speakers, now before the public and hereafter to appear, as will accept no engagement to speak from any committee or arrangement, with any proviso whatever, as to what subject they shall treat, or regarding the manner in which it shall be treated.  A reformatory movement, such as Spiritualism really is, cannot afford so soon to adopt the customs of the Church and fall into its dotage.  On the contrary, it demands an unflinching advocacy of all subjects upon which the Spirit world inspires their mediums under the absolute freedom of the advocate.  To all those speakers who wish to be understood as being something above the muzzled ox which treads out the corn, this column is now open:
