Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Child, David Lee 1794-1874 (search)
Child, David Lee 1794-1874 Abolitionist; born in West Boylston, Mass., July 8, 1794; graduated at Harvard College in 1817: was later admitted to the bar. In 1830 he was editor of the Massachusetts journal, and while holding a seat in the legislature opposed the annexation of Texas; afterwards he issued a tract on the subject entitled Naboth's Vineyard. In 1836 he published ten articles on the subject of slavery, and in the following year, while in Paris, addressed a memoir to the Societepour l'abolition d'esclavage. He also forwarded a pamphlet on the same subject to the Eclectic review in London. In 1843-44 he edited (with his wife) the Anti-slavery standard in New York. He died in Wayland, Mass., Sept. 18, 1874.
terling. The writer finds it quite impossible to carry out the idea with which this chapter was begun, which was to furnish a catalogue embracing all active Anti-Slavery workers who were Abolitionists. Space does not permit. He will therefore condense by giving a portion of the list, the selections being dictated partly by claims of superior merit, and partly by accident. As representative men and women of the East-chiefly of New England and New York-he gives the following: David Lee Child, of Boston, for some time editor of the National Anti-Slavery Advocate. He was the husband of Lydia Maria Child, who wrote the first bound volume published in this country in condemnation of the enslavement of those people called Africans ; Samuel E. Sewell, another Bostonian and a lawyer who volunteered his services in cases of fugitive slaves; Ellis Gray Lowell, another Boston lawyer of eminence; Amos Augustus Phelps, a preacher and lecturer, for whose arrest the slaveholders of New O

eason to iniquity, which he was prosecuting through the columns of the Liberator with unrivaled zeal and devotion. These disciples were Ellis Grey Loring and David Lee Child. They were a goodly company, were these five conspirators, men of intellect and conscience, of high family and social connections, of brilliant attainments aat. The mountain could not go to Mahomet, therefore Mahomet must needs go to the mountain. Garrison could not abandon his position, wherefore in due time Loring, Child, and Sewall surrendered theirs. Finely has Lowell expressed this righteous stubborness, and steadfastness to principle in three stanzas of his poem entitled, Theiple of immediatism incorporated in it. Eleven stood by the leader and made it the chief of the corner of the new society, while three, Messrs. Loring, Sewall, and Child, refused to sign the Constitution and parted sorrowfully from the small band of the New England Anti-Slavery Society. But the separation was only temporary, for e

any with his wife, on September 24, 1835, he spent the following day in Providence, and reached Boston at noon on the 26th. He found there this greeting from David Lee Child, written at New York on the 23d: Be of good cheer. The Devil comes not out without much Ms. tearing and rending and foaming at the mouth. With all my coom he only escaped by accepting Ms. Aug. 7, 1835, Henry to G. W. Benson. the escort of ladies. A similar experience, in Julien Hall, is related on p. 248 of Mrs. Child's Letters, a plot to kidnap Mr. Thompson being foiled by a stratagem of the ladies present. See, also, p. 1 of Boston Commonwealth, Oct. 23, 1880. Unable to remain in New York, whither on the 12th he accompanied Mr. and Mrs. D. L. Child despite the remonstrances of his friends, his first test of the New England temper after the signal had been given from Faneuil Hall proved how much it had changed for the worse towards himself.

ebtedness was general. As for his impulse to write at all, Dr. Channing told Mrs. Child in 1833 that the reading of her Appeal had aroused his Mrs. Child's LettersMrs. Child's Letters, p. 48. conscience to the query whether he ought to remain silent on the subject.

they will be compelled to take sides. As our object is universal emancipation,—to redeem woman as well as man from a servile to an equal condition,—we shall go for the rights of woman to their utmost extent. Such was the first outcome of Mr. Garrison's Perfectionism, whose agreement, be it more or less—or not at all—with Noyes's, it is needless to discuss here. Perfectionism is a dark subject, and attempts to throw light upon it may easily end in leaving it more obscure than ever. Mrs. Child, for example, wrote to her brother, December 22, 1838: Something is coming toward us (I know not what), with Letters, p. 33. a glory round its head, and its long luminous rays are even now glancing on the desert and the rock. The Unitarian, busily at work pulling down old structures, suddenly sees it gild some ancient pillar, or shed its soft light on some mossgrown altar; and he stops with a troubled doubt whether all is to be destroyed; and if destroyed, wherewith shall he build a

ruments above alluded to, non-resistance is more explicitly enjoined upon abolitionists than the duty of using the elective franchise. So thought and wrote David Lee Child, in a masterly letter designed to be read at the American anniversary: For myself, I have never been able to conceive of any principle on which slaves can be d for political electioneering (Lib. 9: 86). Considering the attempt to deduce a particular form of political influence from the general profession on that head, Mr. Child asked, Would any one prescribe the way in which to encourage the religious improvement of the people of color, also enjoined by the Constitution? Joshua Leavitts of their numbers, whence their moral strength would come to seem equally contemptible, and defeat at the polls would discourage all effort in other ways. David Lee Child, in the letter cited above (p. 304), said: We have got ourselves prematurely counted. Heretofore, the numbers of the abolitionists being measured by the good
