New Anti-Slavery Society, in Lyme, N.H.

A NEW SOCIETY  The following is an extract from a letter dated Lyme, (N.H.). Nov 21, 1836

We have just formed an Anti-Slavery Society here in town, without meeting with any serious opposition.  There was a little drumming and sounding of tin horns and goose quills around the building where the meetings were held, which served to stimulate us, and convince us that our cause is  a good one, for we do not believe the devil would send his understrappers to oppose his own work.   Signed  A.S.
