A New Anti-Slavery Society

March 25, 1859

An account of a Convention, recently held in Worcester, in which fifty clergymen and laymen formed The Church Anti-Slavery Society of the United States.   They could not “be brought to unanimous vote, but settled for a majority vote) in regard to the “inherent sinfulness of slaveholding.  “Fifty is but a small number, but by no means a hopeless number.”
