Daniel O’Connell quoted

Masthead, left

“I am for speedy, immediate abolition.  I care not what caste, creed, or color, slavery may assume.  I am for its total, its instant abolition.  Whether it be personal  or political, mental or corporeal, intellectual or spiritual, I am for its immediate abolition.  I enter into no compromise with slavery; I am for justice, in the name of humanity, and according to the law of the living God.”     O’Connell
