Anniversary of British Emancipation & Non-Prejudice of Congregation

Account of an August 3rd gathering at the Belknap Street Church.   “Owing to the insufficiency of the building to accommodate all who would have gladly been present, but few, save the colored citizens, attended; but there was no exclusiveness in the celebration.   There was not house room, but there was heart room, as was proved by the graceful courtesy by which strangers of all complexion were welcomed.  White men would have done well to take a lesson in the humanities of this congregation.”
Speakers include Nell, Hilton, Weeden.
