Slavery Abolished in India

“As it is an act of simple justice, England is entitled to no credit, more than America would be were she to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia.  But, by it, she has taken away one of the strong arguments which American pro-slavery men have urged against the interference of her philanthropists when they have spoken out against our system of abominations.  What will they say when their other arguments based upon British oppression are done away, and theirs is the only country where tyranny is known?….”   (Liberator, May 19, 1843, pg 2)
