Address by Arnold Buffum, President of NE Anti-Slavery Society

New England Anti-Slavery Society

The Constitution of this Society, with an Address to the People of New-England, will be found on our first page.  We commend the Address to the candid perusal of the public, and its sentiments to the cordial adoption of every philanthropist and Christian.  It is hope that the editors of newspapers will  generally give it an insertion.

An Address on Slavery was delivered on Thursday evening in the Essex-street meeting house, by Arnold Buffum, President of the Society.  The audience was auspiciously numerous, giving substantial evidence of the growing interest which is felt in the community on this momentous subject………..But we have not room to enlarge upon its merits. More attentive listeners we never saw.  Every word was eagerly received, and seemed to tell with resistless effect.
