Massachusetts will sustain her tried and faithful representative; and the time is not far distant when the best and worthiest citizens of the entire North will proffer him their thanks for hi noble defence of their rights as freemen, and of the rights of the slave as a man. The Bible and slavery From a review of a pro-slavery pamphlet by Evangelicus in the Boston Emancipator in 1843.

This law was strictly in accordance with the decision ofelf, but as one of the principal originators and most faithful supporters, it was very natural that I should identify thee with it. The inner life. The agency of evil. From the Supernaturalism of New England, in the Democratic Review for 1843. in this life of ours, so full of mystery, so hung about with wonders, so written over with dark riddles, where even the lights held by prophets and inspired ones only serve to disclose the solemn portals of a future state of being, leaving all
