Friends and Foes of Slavery

July 2, 1857

Under the Refuge of Oppression column, from the Newberry, S.C. Rising Sun, is a list of Friends and Foes of Slavery, copied from the New York Day Book.  The list is intended to show, who, among New York merchants, are friends, and who are Foes “to the South”. We give their names, believing that most Southern dealers would prefer to patronize a friend instead of a foe.”
