Surely those who are toiling to effect the deliverance of the vast multitudes of slaves in our land, need no stirring appeal to secure their prompt and crowded attendance at the various gatherings of Freedom in this Commonwealth, on the FIRST OF AUGUST  — the emancipation of eight hundred thousands of slaves in the British West India islands, on that memorable day,  — the sublimest event yet chronicled in the historical volumes of the nineteenth century  — deserves to be celebrated by all who abhor slavery, which still, continues to afflict and disgrace our land. LET ALL TURN OUT!    (Liberator, July 25, 1845, pg 3)
