YOUNG MEN’S ANTI-SLAVERY ASSOCIATION FORMED
It gives us great pleasure to inform our readers, that a new association has been formed in this city, to aid in the diffusion of truth on the subject of slavery. Its objects and plan may be learned from its constitution, which is subjoined.
Constitution, Article 1. This association shall be called the Boston Young Men’s Anti-Slavery Association for the Diffusion of Truth.
The following gentlemen have been elected officers for the ensuing year: Rev. Amos Phelps, President; John N. Barbour, Vice President; John Stimpson, Corresponding Secretary; Alfred Norton, Recording Secretary; John Ford, Treasurer; George Loring, J. H. Tenney, John Cutts Smith, and N. Southard, Trustees.
The number of members is large, and the sum subscribed very considerable. We trust that the young men in other places will imitate the example of their Boston friends, and that the association will be supported by a large number of auxiliaries.
