. Whittier's prose writings against slavery were also numerous—he was a vigorous polemic— and these papers, twenty in number, may be found together in vol.
VII. of the Riverside edition.
Among them are the pamphlet Justice and expediency, which he refers to in his account of the convention of 1833 as his first venture in authorship, and his two letters to the Jeffersonian and times, Richmond, Va. (1833), on The abolitionists: their sentiments and objects.
The life of Whittier, by Samuel T. Pickard, is especially full, touching his work against slavery and his general political life, which was much more active than is commonly supposed.
There are briefer biographies by Underwood, Kennedy, and Linton, and interesting volumes of personal reminiscences by Mrs. Mary B. Claflin and Mrs. James T. Fields.
