Anti-Slavery Wafers

The October 15 and 22 issues of the Liberator, 1841, include articles about Anti-Slavery Wafers which are designed for sealing letters, and which are available at the office.  “They constitute a valuable addition to the means of usefulness already possessed by abolitionists.  Each sheet contains ninety-eight mottoes.  Prices six cents single, 25 sheets for one dollar.”   Here are samples of some of the mottoes on the Wafers:  “Love God above and, thy neighbor as thyself, and slavery would disappear from the earth.”  … “The church which tolerates slavery, tolerates sin, and is no true church.” … “Are not all men brothers?  How can one be the slave, the property of another?”
