Edmund Quincy Quotes

What has the North to do with slavery? What have we to do with it, indeed! when it encircles us like the air we breathe -- as invisible but as ever near us -- when it makes our laws, controls our interests, appoints our rulers, sets a price upon our heads, demands the sacrifice of our free utterance, disfranchises in one half the States the citizens when the Constitution has made free every where--when it makes Religion its pander, and the Church its sanctuary!




Edmund Quincy, 1808-1877, Abolitionist, Historian & Editor, Son of Josiah Quincy, Letter to William Ellery Channing, Dedham, April 12, 1840
