Stephen Pearl Andrews 523
British-dominated territory, slavery must be expunged. Yet for
many, the humorless idealist Stephen Pearl Andrews evokes
not derision but a somewhat reluctant admiration. His courage,
his audacity, especially his idealism demand respect. At Gal-
veston and at Virginia Point, at Houston and in London, in
Salem and at Boston's Tremont Temple, even in his phonographic
depot where he was inscribing freedom in phonetic pothooks
on a blackboard, he helped to shape the history of his country and
clothe it in an enthusiast's dreamlike fabric. He had been re-
pudiated and his mission had failed; yet at the end, and partly
through his failure, his purpose had prevailed."
