Quakers:

THE TESTIMONY OF THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS ON THE CONTINENT OF AMERICA.

Philadelphia: 1830 39pp, dbd, light wear. Very Good. The Testimony reflects anguish over the "deeply affecting schism" in the Society of Friends, decrying "the introduction of speculative opinions, under specious colorings," and warning that "the writings of our early Friends [are] perverted to support those views." In addition to highlighting the correct path, this piece unequivocally condemns slavery and the slave trade; slaves are "having their just right to liberty and property violently withheld." Also printed in New York this year. Sabin 86070. AI 1508 [many].
