When he observed that he was glad to hear it, James replied, But in the course of my reading I have discovered that it would be a sin for me to serve you as a slave any longy during that time; but I cannot consent to be a slave any longer. His master refused to consent to this proposition. James then asked permission to go to sea till he could earn money enough to buy his freedom; but this proposal was likewise prome cause to know how hateful are persecutors, in the sight of God and of men. I cannot therefore be active in persecuting James, or any other man, on account of conscientious scruples. It is your duty to have him punished, rejoined the blacksmithaying, I hope to mercy your daughter will marry a negro. At the expiration of the term of imprisonment allowed by law, James still refused to return to service, and he was committed for another thirty days. His master called to see him again, and

James Davis. In 1795, James escaped from bondage in Maryland, and went to Philadelphia, where he soon after married. He remained undisturbed for ten years, during which time he supported himself and family comfortably by sawing wood. But one day, in the year 1805, his master called to see him, accompanied by two other men, who were city constables. He appeared to be very friendly, asked James how he was getting along, and said he was glad to see him doing so well. At last, he remarked, and pushed for the opposite shore. The noise attracted the attention of his guard, who threatened him with instant death if he did not return. They loaded their pistols as quickly as possible, and fired after him, but luckily missed their aim. James succeeded in reaching the opposite side of the river, where he set the boat adrift, lest some one should take it back and enable them to pursue him. He bent his course toward Philadelphia, and on arriving there, went directly to Friend Hopper's h

After he had been there a few months, several runaway slaves in his neighborway. I am not afraid of that, replied Mr. Hart. I will tie him by the teeth; meaning he would feed him well. In fact, James now appeared quite satisfied. His new master and mistress were kind to him, and he was faithful and diligent in their se who had kindly permitted him to use it, he ordered the animal to be taken to the stable and supplied with hay and oats. James was treated kindly by all the family, and spent two days very agreeably. When about to take leave, Mr. Mc Calmont said ty.

easant child. Her son James resided with relatives in Philadelphia, and often went to bathe in the Delaware. On one of these occasions, soon after his mother's visit, a friend who went with him sank in the water, and James lost his own life by efforts to save him. A messenger was sent to inform his parents, who lived at the distance of eight miles. While he staid in the house, reluctant to do his mournful errand, the mother was siezed with sudden dread, and heard the inward voice saying, James is drowned. She said abruptly to the messenger, Thou hast come to tell me that my son James is drowned. Oh, how did it happen? He was much surprised, and asked why she thought so. She could give no explanation of it, except that it had been suddenly revealed to her mind. I have heard and read many such stories of Quakers, which seem too well authenticated to admit of doubt. They themselves refer all such cases to the inward light; and that phrase, as they understand it, conveys a satis
