Criticism of Edward Everett

“A few years since a painful shock was given to many minds in New England, by the avowal of Edward Everett in Congress, that no act would he perform with more alacrity than that of putting on his knapsack, shouldering his musket, and marching to the south to assist the oppressors of that region in keeping their slaves in bondage. He also attempted to prove, that the term servants ought to be rendered slaves in the following passage:  Servants (slaves) be obedient to your masters. ”  (Liberator, January 23, 1836, pg 2)
