Prejudice against Thomas Paul, at Dartmouth

We learn with pain and mortification, that one of the literary societies in this noble institution has refused to admit young Paul, of Boston, on account of his color.  The society mainly it is said are desirous of his admission, but cannot admit him without the voice of the whole.  Certain dainty-hued young gentlemen cast black balls against his admission………………The time is at hand when these sentiments and behavior of these young students will render their names very unreputable.  We know the force of prejudice ,  — but really, when it takes so dishonorable an occasion, it becomes immorality.   Herald of Freedom
