American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions

The Annual Meeting of the Board of Commisioners of Foreign Missions, so long an effective ally of slavery, both in theory and practice, has now felt the pressure of a change in popular opinion sufficiently to swing round with the rising tide; and it points now towards the destruction of slavery, as formerely towards its preservation.  Among the business transacted at its Annual Meeting, recently held in Rochester, New York, and very largely attended, there were certain Resolutions on the state of the country illustrating this change.  (Liberator, Oct 23, 1863, pg 2)
