“No Abolitionist” ??? in Wheeling ???

“Perhaps  some of our brethren in the Maine Conference will be diverted a little, on learning that two of their delegates wrote opposite to each of their names, when they entered them in the passenger book at Wheeling, West Virginia, ‘No Abolitionist’.  When in the land of  ‘Lynch law’ we must mind our P’s and Q’s, you know. ”   (from Zion Watchman, copied in Liberator,June 18, 1836, pg 3)
