Pamphlet by John G.Whittier


John G. Whittier of Haverhill, a member of the Society of Friends, and a gentleman distinguished as a writer, has published an excellent pamphlet on the subject of slavery, with the following title: ‘Justice and Expediency ; or Slavery considered with a view to its rightful remedy, Abolition.’   The subject is discussed with great ability, and the duty and policy of immediate emancipation illustrated and enforced in a lucid and convincing manner. Friend Whittier deserves to be called the STUART of America.
