Good Abolition News from Sweden

“Most gratifying intelligence has reached us from Sweden.  We received with pleasure and with hope, the announcement made in the Diet of that country in 1841, when an address to the King was voted, praying for the abolition of slavery in the island of St. Bartholomew’s.  We now learn with high satisfaction, that King Oscar has returned an answer to this address, altogether concurring  in the prayer. Anti-Slavery Reporter.” (Liberator, January 10, 1845, pg 4)
