British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society created

From the Dublin Herald comes word of the formation of the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society, for the abolition of the Slave Trade and Slavery throughout the World.    On Wednesday the 17th the first meeting was held at Exeter Hall, London. …if we are to judge of its future proceedings by the vigour which has characterized its first movements, we may hope for great things.   (Liberator,, June 14, 1839, pg 1)
