Progressive Friends Meeting

June 20, 1862

A long article tells of the tenth annual meeting of Progressive Friends, held at Longwood, PA.  The article includes a “Testimony on the Rebellion”, which says, in part:   “The cause of this bloody civil strife, therefore, being the enslavement of four million of the inhabitants of the land, there is but one sure method of bringing it to an end, and making at least partial atonement for our great iniquity.  It is TO ABOLISH SLAVERY WITHOUT DELAY.”
