Grimke Sisters address Female Anti-Slavery Society

Boston Female A.S. Society

This Society was addressed on Wednesday last, by Sarah M. and Angelina Grimke, sisters of the late Thomas S. Grimke of South Carolina, so widely known and respected both at the South and at the North.  The effect produced by their addresses may be partly inferred from the fact, that 35 ladies became members of the Society on the spot.    It is truly a blessing to our cause that such eloquent and unimpeachable witnesses should have been impelled from the very depths of slavery, to testify against it, and to call on all who, by doubt or silence, or studied  neutrality, continue to sustain it, to come up to the work of its extinction…..
