Excerpt from book: Where rising o'er the vales below, These priest-like trees in gowns of snow, Arose with outstretched arms, and prayed, A benediction o'er the glade. Calm was the night, both calm and cold, And winter firmer grasped its hold, That long had known this stubborn clime, For now 'twas after Christmas time. A Christmas-time that to each boy Had brought all else of earth save joy: For in each home throughout the land, The law of an oppressor's hand Had thrust beside the fireside there, To all the unwelcome guest of care. A care: that bowed each pious head; From which long years before they fled, And gladly to the breeze unfurled Their sails, toward a new-found world. Vain was the hope that long was theirs, Though freedom still adorned their prayers; A Monarch's unjust laws pursued, That every cherished hope subdued: While through their thriving hamlets ring, The unjust mandates of the King. But to his chief ne'er savage sprang More swift, when loud the war cry rang; chapter{Section 4Than answered they the leader's ire, Who fanned the smouldering wrath to fire; As, frequent pausing 'mid their toil, He vowed the freedom of the soil. From out the leafless woods that reared Its naked boughs, three forms appeared. The first, though aged, would dare to brave The angered tiger in its cave, And well with ease his iron frame, A giant's wrathful ire might tame. A patriot he whose mighty arm Eebuked the cavil of alarm, And ready rose to deal the blow Whene'er injustice was the foe. Thus oft inviting him to seek The council of the poor and weak, Had caused an enemy to bring His name reproachful to the King, That brought for noble deeds instead An offering on his aged head. There a...

Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www.million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free. This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: their masters; and were the relation ordained of God, the unconcern would, surely, be both philosophical and sinless. God cannot approve of a system of servitude, in which the master is guilty of assuming absolute power—of assuming God's place and relation towards his Cellow-men. Were the master, in every case, a wise and good man—as wise and good as is consistent with this wicked and heaven-daring assumption on his part—the condition of the slave would it is true, be far more tolerable, than it now is. But even then, we should protest as strongly as ever against slavery; for it would still be guilty of its essential wickedness of robbing a man of his right to himself, and of robbing God of His right to him, and of putting these stolen rights into the hand of an erring mortal. Nay, if angels were constituted slaveholders, our objection to the relation would remain undiminished ; since there would still be the same robbery of which we now complain. But you will say, that I have overlooked the servitude in which the Jews held strangers and foreigners; and that it is on this, more than any other, that you rely for your justification of slavery. I will say nothing now of this servitude ; but before I close this communication, I will give my reasons for believing, that whatever was its nature, even if it were compulsory, it cannot be fairly pleaded in justification of slavery. After you shall have allowed, as you will allow, that slavery, as it exists, is at war with God, you will be likely to say, that the fault is not in the theory of it; but in the practical departure from that theory; that it is not the system, but the practice under it, which is at war with God. Our concern, however, is with slavery as it is, and not with any theory of it. But to indulge you, we will loo...
