rience had in it an element which connects while it contrasts the lives of both. Towards the close of 1819, while Lloyd was in his early printer's apprenticeship, James, then in his twentieth year, bound himself to one Benjamin Sisson, a Savannah pilot—a slaveholder, cruel and tyrannical, whose wretched treatment at last drove Jampregnancy, to gratify his wife. was wearied rather than glutted, he desisted. The next day he mounted his horse for the homeward journey, and, fastening a rope to James's Cf. ante, 1.270. body, forced him to keep up on foot. A second flogging, on shipboard at Savannah, nearly finished the boy, and when his lacerated back was viewed by the Mayor and other white men, they were shocked at a sight which no negro had ever afforded them. To save his neck, Sisson and his wife had to nurse James as if he were their darling. The worst details of these barbarities were concealed from Fanny Garrison while she lived, by her wayward son.

a member of the American and Mass. Boards, and is always ready with his money, and has no reverences of any kind. He began by being a Come-outer. He is one of the best of fellows. A thorough man of business, managing a very large concern and making plenty of money, without being the slave of business or money. John W. Browne, Maria W. Chapman, Charles K. Whipple, Samuel Philbrick, Loring Moody, Edmund Quincy, S. S. and Abby Kelley Foster, G. W. Benson, Andrew Robeson, Parker Pillsbury, James and Lucretia Mott, Edward M. Davis, C. C. Burleigh, H. C. Wright, J. Miller McKim, Thomas McClintock, and Joseph C. Hathaway. These were joined later by Samuel May, Jr., R. F. Wallcut, Increase S. Smith, William A. White, and Joshua T. Everett. The anti-slavery complexion of this list was unmistakable, and, in truth, if any experience could breed anti-Sabbath conventions, it had been precisely that of the abolitionists. On an earlier occasion, the Rev. Samuel May, Jr., had said: The infid
elf—converses with a person who has strong opinions against slavery, what harm can there be in that? Your cause will then lose many friends in this city, was the answer (Pulszky's White, Red, and Black: Sketches of American Society in the U. S., 1.154-157; Lib. 23.40). This was what non-interference and neutrality signified under the rule of slavery. Kossuth had brought from England letters of introduction to the Motts, but declined their invitation to dinner, though he called upon them ( James and Lucretia Mott, pp. 333-337). Judge Kane, it is true, spoke only in a Pickwickian sense. He had just done his best to convict Castner Lib. 22.6, 14; Pamphlet Report of the Trial of C. Hanway. Hanway of treason in connection with a fugitive-slave case in which the enemies of freedom were shot down by the lovers of it—though not by this Quaker defendant. Ante, p. 325. But Kossuth's utterances, proceeding from a narrow and selfish patriotism, were equally Pickwickian, and he was now m
uted martyrdom therefor. When he said: Love your enemies, he did not mean, Kill them if they go too Luke 6.27. far. When he said, while expiring on the cross: Father, Luke 23.34. forgive them; for they know not what they do, he did not treat them as a herd of buffaloes, but as poor, misguided, and lost men. We believe in his philosophy; we accept his instruction; we are thrilled by his example; we rejoice in his fidelity. How touching is the language of James!— Ye have condemned and James 5.6. killed the just; and he doth not resist you. And how melting to the soul is the declaration: He was led as a lamb to the Acts 8.32. slaughter ! And again: God commendeth his love towards us Rom. 5.8. in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. This New Testament argument, met with unsigned, would probably in no quarter of Christendom suggest anything but a Christian origin. But in this very year a book reviewer was allowed, in the N. Y.
