Announcing Uncle Tom’s Cabin

Announcing the publication of this book, there are quotes from the author’s preface, expressions of praise for its effect “to awaken the strongest compassion for the oppressed and the utmost abhorrence of the system which grinds them to the dust…. The work, towards its conclusion, contains some objectionable sentiments respecting African Colonization, which we regret to see….”   (Liberator, March 26, 1852)
