Description
All virtuous men should use their influence to stop the slave trade; it was discountenanced in the last Assembly by a bill reported from committee, but was referred to the next Assembly; the matter is to come up at the next town-meeting; they should be there to urge their views on their representatives; he himself has been a transgressor, having made a voyage in that trade, for which he has since suffered great remorse.
