Joseph Sturge (1793-1859) was once an English Quaker who was once influential in campaigning for the abolition of slavery within the British empire and based the British and international Anti-Slavery Society in 1839. Having visited the West Indies in 1834, he travelled to the USA in 1841 to check the slavery query there firsthand, and to lend his aid to the yank abolition flow via sharing his stories of ways luck was once accomplished in other places. His account of his stopover at, and of the sentiments and critiques of the yankee campaigners he met, is the topic of this 1842 ebook, which he was hoping might motivate activists all over the world and advertise knowing between them.
