O’Connell urges Irish to join Abolitionists

Daniel O’Connell, Father Theobald, and 60,000 other Irishmen, wrote to Irishmen in America these words:

      “Oppose slavery by all the peaceful means in your power. Join with the Abolitionists everywhere; they are the consistent advocates of liberty. Tell every man that you do not understand liberty for the white man,and slavery for the black man; and that you are for liberty for all, of every color, creed and country.”
