Anti-Slavery in Maryland

“A correspondent of the Bangor Gazette, residing in Baltimore, makes the following statement, in a letter to the editor of that paper, dated July 4th … The great body of Christian people in this city, have no love or affection for slavery; they mourn over it and feel its crushing power, like an incubus of death and desolation — a mass of corruption to the whole social and political fabric of society  … The laws of Maryland still uphold slavery, but those laws are fast becoming a dead letter …”   (Liberator, September 29, pg 1,  1843)
