8 Noteworthy in this connection is a poster seen in the streets of Glasgow in November, 1850, which ran thus: ‘Fugitive Slave Bill and manhood Suffrage.—A great public meeting of Working Men and others friendly to Slave Emancipation, and a just measure of Political Reform in the British House of Commons, will be held in the City Hall, on Tuesday evening, the 26th inst., when resolutions will be submitted condemnatory of Slavery and the Fugitive Slave Bill, recently become law in the United States, and also against an Exclusive Suffrage in this country.’ The order of topics recalls the subsequent attitude of the Lancashire cotton-operatives during our civil war—Freedom first for America, employment then for ourselves. See, for reports of the Glasgow meeting, with its appeal to the workingmen of America, Lib. 21: 5.
