Boston: James Munroe, 1836. 12mo, dbd and a bit loosened. 35pp. Good+ to Very Good.

Bradford reviews the history of the abolition movement in America from its founding in Philadelphia, with the support of Benjamin Franklin, and explains that those who advocate "the duty of silence" are making a big mistake.
